Art/Games is a non-profit, free online journal. Currently it is published biannually as a .pdf through our website.
It’s our belief that games are an art medium. They are complex, multi-faceted artistic objects enmeshed in a wider social and critical context. Taking games seriously, exploring their crossover with contemporary art practice, writing and cultural discourse, is essential to the development of all contemporary culture. We aim to provide an experimental publishing platform for people working across the fields of arts, games and writing, bringing contemporary art, academia and the gaming community together.
