Hier sollte eigentlich ein Bild sein. Leider ist ein Fehler unterlaufen.

Let’s play Maidan?! The potential of playsettings for new orders in theory.

Christina Schwigon

A provocative line-up that refers to the central questions: How can one see the phenomenon Maidan from the outside as a whole and how can one deal with the highly diversified cultural production in and around the last year’s process.

Beyond that we can follow the gesture of exchange-seeking demonstration reaching new media like digital games. Can Maidan thus be named a showcase of play to a certain degree?

The chosen theories find their origin in Rancière and Huizinga  to clear the relatively wide horizon of play theories and to show that a play is set as a moment in cultural development and self-authorization techniques.
