The Game of War Weekend at the HTTP Gallery.


Sat 26th September:
Participatory demonstration - Marcel Duchamp meets Blue Peter.

Sun 27th September:
World Premier of Class Wargames film - The Game of War.

The Situationist Raoul Vaneigem famously wrote "There are no more
artists since we've all become artists. Our next work of art is the
construction of a full-blooded life." - The Revolution of Everyday Life.

Debord, strategist of the Situationist International, developed the game
while in exile after the May '68 Revolution, and came to regard it as
his most important project. For Debord, The Game of War wasn't just a
game - come and learn how to fight and win against the oppressors of the
spectacular society! Join the Class Wargames crew, Richard Barbrook,
Fabian Tompsett, Ilze Black and others, in redefining political and
contextual territories.

On Saturday the 26th, Class Wargames presents 'Marcel Duchamp meets Blue
Peter', a day of making and playing Guy Debord's The Game of War.

Sunday is the World Premier launch of the Class Wargames' film - The
Game of War. Directed by Ilze Black; script writers Richard Barbrook and
Fabian Tompsett; xenography by Alex Veness, voice over by Hayley Newman
and Alex Veness.
