Two Weeks of Art Games

Different Perspectives: Art Games Festival is a triptych of activities, each of which plays a unique role in supporting and helping to grow games as an art form.

As a whole, these activities highlight and celebrate the cultural value of video games during this two week festival in Het Bos.

Not a gamer? Not a game developer? Not a problem! In the exhibition Relive/Herleef we welcome everyone with an open mind and cultural interest. We make sure anyone can discover the artistic potential of the 21st century's most revolutionary medium.

Expo on Autobiographical Games

The exhibition Relive/Herleef wants to highlight the artistic and cultural manifestation of alternative autobiographical video games. It brings audiences together, and is the central, shared core of Different Perspectives Art Games Festival.

Relive/Herleef welcomes all audiences to discover games, even if you have never played games before.
