Tonight I am giving a presentation with Kodwo Eshun at the Homeworks Festival in Beirut, Lebanon.

The talk is entitled “Kriegsspiel 2.0: Immersion and Control in the military entertainment complex” and is basically about gaming and war. We will be discussing MIcrosoft’s Project Natal, Activision’s Modern Warfare 2, the films Brainstorm, Strange Days, eXistenZ, Southland Tales, Gamer and Harun Farocki’s Immersion.
