What can you do with a Cosmic House? Part II

Event, English, Online, 27 March 2023, 1pm to 2:30pm

Join Liza Fior, Stephen Kwok, and Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad to play new games and talk about games in the context of a museum—a place where we are not often allowed to play.

This event marks the end of a residency that CCA Curator Public, Lev Bratishenko started in 2022 at The Cosmic House in London, opened by the Jencks Foundation as a cultural laboratory to promote critical experimentation in historical and artistic research.

The residency focused on inventing new public event formats specific to The Cosmic House and Charles Jencks’s archive and library, and using these games to reflect on norms of behaviour in museums.

Register here to attend online.

Hosted by Eszter Steierhoffer, Artistic Director of The Cosmic House, and Lev Bratishenko.

Stephen Kwok is an artist making experimental events and participatory systems, and Curator of Public Engagement at Dia Art Foundation.

Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad is a designer who likes to play, he also leads a program focused on participatory, and socially-engaged design at the Royal College of Art.
