Class Wargames are playing Guy Debord's The Game of War


The Situationist Raoul Vaneigem famously wrote "There are no more artists since we've all become artists. Our next work of art is the construction of a full-blooded life." - The Revolution of Everyday Life.

Debord, leader of the Situationist International, developed the game while in exile after the May '68 Revolution, and came to regard it as his most important project. For Debord, The Game of War wasn't just a game - come and learn how to fight and win against the oppressors of the spectacular society! Join the Class Wargames crew, Richard Barbrook, Fabian Tompsett, Ilze Black and others, in redefining political and contextual territories.

On Saturday the 26th, Class Wargames presents 'Marcel Duchamp meets Blue Peter', a day of making and playing Guy Debord's The Game of War.

Sunday is the World Premier launch of the Class Wargames' film - The Game of War. Directed by Ilze Black; script writers Richard Barbrook and Fabian Tompsett; xenography by Alex Veness, voice over by Hayley Newman and Alex Veness.
