Art & Arcade

An Exhibition by Alain Bieber
Posted by Gestalten—01/2014

Pong, Space Invaders, Pac-Man, and Donkey Kong are classics from the heyday of electronic video games when arcade video machines spreaded over Europe and the US during the 1970s and 1980s. Alain Bieber has now introduced a contemporary version of such a penny arcade at Basel's House of Electronic Arts.

A growing number of artists now explores video games and the game machines themselves as a medium for artistic expression. On show in Basel are seven modified arcade-machines from all over the world, among them old-time favorites such as Painstation and PentaPong (which can also be found at Berlin's museum of computer games) and innovations like table soccer sound installation, art-market flipper or the Radical ATM—of course these installations can be used, if not only admired. The exhibition is complemented by artworks of JODI, Evan Roth, and Hussein Chalayan. For the opening hours, guided tours and special program, please visit Haus-ek.org.
