Binna Choi and Axel John Wieder
The latest issue of the biannual publication from the public “art think-tank” Casco, based in The Netherlands, explores the notion of playfulness itself as a method and value in cultural practice, positioning it to contrast with fashionable ideologies like “lifelong learning” and “work as play.” The publication addresses the impact of the notion of play and gaming methods in cultural work, [exploring connections between text and images and addressing the various research methods to question the historical shift in the concept of the game and playfulness.] Casco, Office for Art, Design and Theory, is devoted to studying art in the public realm, and the relation between art and the physical, social and political environment.
