What is the position of the class of "gamers" in today's culture and 
society? Could game culture be used for emancipatory
purposes and education? Is the militarization of game culture 
something that can be deconstructed or does it represent a highly
customizable recruitment and ideological tool of the war culture?

The exhibition "Play Cultures" is an international exhibition that 
presents contemporary artistic production that uses the
language of digital games and shows one possible view of how the 
genre of digital games can be used in a creative and engaging way. 
The exhibition consists of standalone games, mods, video works, 
multiplayer games and interactive storytelling. Exhibition consists 
of works covering wide spectrum from political propaganda to hacker 
technics and from high aestheticism to social themes.
