about the project

We play a role

The starting point was to create an interactive work of art that could be activated in the public space. The group started by examining the “game” as a concept and a form. Through role-playing and exercises, they tested the game’s structure and possibilities. The result was an oversized board game with 140 artistically designed tiles in linoleum that was laid out in Fittja square. The idea of the game was not about winning, but cooperating in groups of at least 3 and together completing a number of missions and challenges that arose along the course of the game.

“We play a role” was activated during Botkyrka Konsthall’s Art Festival & Flea Market at Fittja Torg on September 17, and was also included in the exhibition “Transitions / Transitions” in Botkyrka Konsthall, Tumba on October 1, 2016 – January 31, 2017.
