ITALIANS DO IT BETTER!!
ITALIANS DO IT BETTER!! is an alternative Italian Pavilion. This irreverent and slightly subversive retrospective celebrates the work of several artists who have been experimenting and exploiting game-based technologies for more than two decades. Specifically organized for the first edition of NEOLUDICA. ART IS A GAME at the 2011 Venice Biennial, ITALIANS DO IT BETTER!! pays homage to Italian videogame-based art interventions. Visitors will get a chance to see the past, present and, possibly, future of indigenous game-based art, in analog and digital form, on canvas and on screen. This is seriously playful art.
