Metamatic:taf presents the Non Zero Sum Art Games which opens on Thursday March 7th and will run until March 24th 2013.
A Non Zero Sum Game is, in game theory, a situation where one decision maker's gain (or loss) does not necessarily result in the other decision makers' loss (or gain) - a win-win game. They generally have both competitive and cooperative elements. Players engaged have some complementary interests and some interests that are completely opposed.
The Non Zero Sum Art Games is a program of exhibitions and performances focusing on the power that art and people have to transform the socio/political psyche of the public in 3 European cities; Dublin, Lisbon and Athens, all whom have recently been hit by financial crisis. Two groups of Irish artists will travel to Athens and Lisbon to work under financial and time restrictions, as well as rules imposed by the curators. The Non Zero Sum Art Games will open on March 7th with a live video link between all venues.
