Angela Washko's "The Game: The Game" installed at the Museum of the Moving Image

Writing in the December issue of Artforum, Johanna Fateman named Professor Angela Washko‘s solo presentation of “The Game: The Game” at the Museum of the Moving Image a “Top Ten of 2018.” The exhibition was on view January 10 – April 1, 2017.

Fateman writes, “Washko’s ‘The Game: The Game’—a choose-your-own-adventure narrative in the radical tradition of Lynn Hershman Leeson’s early interactive works—is an intensely researched nightmare world based on the toxic pedagogy of incel-adjacent pickup-artist (“PUA”) gurus. In this video game, players are prey, gaslit and groped by a succession of Mark Judge types as they wait for a friend at a bar. Washko is dealing with ugly and important material in ingenious ways—she’s one to watch.”
