Discussion on the representation of gender in computer games
Fri, 07.06.2019, 2 pm CEST

In video games, female characters often take on stereotypical roles. Why? Britta Neitzel and Nina Kiel talk about the change in gender relations in computer games. 

The GameLab of HfG builds a bridge between HfG and ZKM. The format of the joint event is the »Ludologische Salon«. Starting in the summer semester of 2019, the Salon will take place once every semester and for a few hours bring two to three prominent guests together to discuss a games topic. It is planned that each guest will give a short, pointed impulse for a subsequent discussion with the audience. The theme of the first salon will be gender issues. The salon is aimed at the entire HfG, the ZKM and all interested and curious people.
