bauen wohnen denken is a durational roleplay series that is occupied with the ludic formation of cultural mythologies and the subjectivities they produce. The project aims to explore gaming culture as a space for artistic production, cultural prototyping and community building.
Oblivious of your past identity, you will find yourself on a pristine island. Three factions will inhabit the land, one of which you will be made to join based on your inner beliefs. Together, you will build a world, developing your society’s own cultural tenets and aesthetics.
During six months of avatarian Live Action Role-Play, participants regularly engaged in contextualising discussions on the Mythical Institution’s Discord server. Faction members were then commissioned to produce visual and text-based contributions which would illustrate their respective faction’s emerging subjectivity. The produced lore is compiled in Mythical Anthology – Vol 2.
