Blown Up: Gaming and War
Gallery 101; Ottawa, Canada

Gallery 101: Blown Up: Gaming and War presents works by three artists from different geopolitical positions in the distribution of war—Germany, Iraq, and the Palestinian diaspora—who improvise strategies of engagement with the ever accelerating relationship between videos games and war.

In The Night of Bush Capturing: A Virtual Jihadi , Wafaa Bilal has modified a game that has been used in the ideological component of the battle between the American military and Al Qaeda.

The show will run from January 18th to March 2nd, at Gallery 101 (address below)

301 1/2 Bank Street, Ottawa, Canada

Curator : Vicky Moufawad-Paul
