Guy Debord's 1978 "Game of War"
Produced for computer by RSG

* bring your own laptop *

In 1978 the French Situationist Guy Debord designed and fabricated a board game called "The Game of War." Thirty years later RSG is resurrecting this largely forgotten game, translating the game instructions from French to Java and releasing it as an online computer game. We explore the contradiction between Debord, a symbol of radical politics and art in 1960s France, and the Napoleonic war game he created. In Debord's own words the game was the only thing in his entire body of work that had any value. Was it nostalgia, or a vision of things
to come?

Founded in 2000, RSG is a collective of programmers and artists working on experimental software products. The Kriegspiel team consists of: Alexander R. Galloway, producer and programming; Carolyn Kane, research;
Adam Parrish, programming; Daniel Perlin, sound; DJ /rupture and Matt Shadetek, music; and Mushon Zer-Aviv, design.
