Lídia Pereira - About Feministic video games
In their 2009 book "Games of Empire: Global Capitalism and Video Games" , professors in the fields of Communication and Media Studies Nick Dyer-Witheford and Greig de Peuter note the growing array of activist videogames with an explicitly political message that appeared from the year 2000 onwards.
In her talk, Lídia Pereira will focus on the beginning stages of her investigation into the specific features of videogames as tactical media: what are the strengths and the potential pitfalls of the medium? What possibilities for creative expression, specifically through a critically engaged lens, are opened by investigating this field from an artistic perspective? Contradictions and ambivalence will be suggested as the raw material for tactical artistic interventions on the medium, in an endeavour to contribute to the growing the field of videogames used as a means for systemic critique.
