States of Play: Roleplay Reality @ FACT Liverpool

If you're in Liverpool, I'm in an exhibition @ FACT museum. 

Here's some info: 

This interactive exhibition considers how roleplay - found in many video games - can be used as tactic to reflect, contest and move beyond real-world power structures. No longer to be understood merely as a place of escape, the game realm and the ‘real world’ have collided. 

"States of Play: Roleplay Reality is, hands down, the most emotionally effecting exhibition I’ve seen. From start to finish it is immersive, uncomfortable, upsetting, relatable, relaxing and terrifying. It’s a brilliant exhibition" - Art in Liverpool
