On the occasion of the exhibition Playtime – Videogame mythologies, the Maison d’Ailleurs and Infolio editions publish a bilingual (fr & en) catalog that presents both the artworks exhibit in the museum and five original essays on five topics related to videogame’s practice. The issues of rules of play, virtual geographies, fictional immersion, interference with reality and archeology of fun, are treated both in terms of singular works and general papers; the reader is invited to browse an area that he find familiar, but still a bit opaque.
The catalog is available in three colors, remembering the choices that must be done by all the players when they’re playing video games.
