In times of upheaval and reorientation, the medium games is becoming more and more important in conveying content beyond pure entertainment. In recent years, the term “serious games” has been increasingly rejected by game developers and academics due to its misinterpretation as “not entertaining” and “only for learning purposes” and its often poor execution. “Impact games” is beginning to establish itself as a term for digital games that influence attitudes and behavior, promote empathy, and contribute to solutions to social, economic, educational, scientific, and cultural challenges. In this segment, tasks in areas such as health, education, and ecology are increasingly becoming part of narrative content and gameplay.
For the VIENNA BIENNALE exhibition CLIMATE CARE: Reimagining Shared Planetary Futures at the MAK running until 3 October 2021, SUBOTRON curated five games from all over the world which interactively visualize issues around climate care topics to the visitors and inspire them to take joint action.
 
Presentations and Panel
Representatives of all games gather for presentations of their work and takes on impact games and climate care. The ensuing panel discusses their approaches and solutions on how to help saving the planet via interactive experiences with the audience. The international participants will be streamed, the locals are on site.

MAK DESIGN NITE 2021

6 p.m.–midnight 

The MAK DESIGN NITE 2021 is characterized by zero waste glamor: together with the conceptual collectives das Vulgo and cucinaAlchimia, in cooperation with the team from das kraus, the MAK invites you to an experimental culinary happening. What was previously discounted as worthless food waste is appreciated as a valuable resource, and material research is carried out with it at the culinary level. Various spirits and vinegars will be steeped or flavored from food waste. Fruit and vegetable scraps will be fermented and designed in various dishes on location. The entire tableware is sustainable and was specially designed for the evening.
