Artist Talk with Anita Sarkeesian

Anita Sarkeesian is a media critic and one of the leaders behind Feminist Frequency, a not-for-profit educational organisation that analyzes the representations of women in pop culture narratives. It is known best for the video series “Tropes vs Women in Video Games”, in which limiting and sexist representations of women in video games are illuminated. This project triggered a massive hatred campaign against Anita Sarkeesian, that was discussed in media worldwide.

In the Artist Talk we want to talk about how to become a media critic, what projects Anita is currently working on and which role games played in her childhood.

In the Artist Talks, we will direct the spotlight to people who made great games, had fantastic ideas or created exceptional game formats. We talk to artists, developers, inventors about their professional career, their creative influences, and take a look at the games of their lives: games that have been embedded in the memory and which have shaped their current work. The artist talk is moderated by Gunnar Krupp.

The artist talk with Anita Sarkeesian will be held in English.

Please note: No video or audio recordings are allowed during this event.
