Art, Video Games and New Approaches to Ludic Narratives


Art, Video Games and New Approaches to Ludic Narratives
Video Games Seminar, September 15-16, 2011, Istanbul

 Invitation for Submission

In parallel to the Space Invaders international exhibition, the main event of the upcoming edition of the Kurye Video and Digital Arts Festival, which will be held between September 9-23, we are organizing a two-day seminar on video games at the YEM building to bring together researchers working in the field of game studies and game design. The seminar will be one of the events of ISEA (International Symposium on Electronic Art), the most influential academic organization specializing on electronic arts. 

Our principle aim is to establish academic connections between game researchers from different disciplines to enable future collaborations. We are hoping that our effort will contribute to the current state of game studies inTurkey. In the event, there will also be international researchers invited as keynote speakers, whose names will be announced later. Participation is invitation based; there will be no public call for papers.


Apart from visual representations in games, which are generally referred to as game art, there are various other examples of interrelation between art and games. Art games appeared as intentional designs to challenge the problematic of the clash between game and narrative. On the other hand, video game art, the use of game elements in artworks, has incorporated these elements into playful techniques in art and design.  Also the contemporary artistic attempts in representational worlds of games, especially in Massively Multiplayer Online Games, necessitate the reconsideration of not only different forms of play, but also the political and the social aspects of the game worlds.

Submission and Deadlines:

We invite you to participate in the seminar with a 20-minute presentation. One-page abstracts and short biographies should be submitted by August 15th.
