About A MAZE
A MAZE - By combining courage for experimentation and joy in gaming, A MAZE celebrates the convergence of computer games and art. A MAZE is more than simply a festival – it is a series of events as well as a conceptual format that offers a regularly emerging platform for interdisciplinary exchange. Creatives are encouraged to break down the conventional computer game and surpass established concepts of play. A MAZE emerges regularly with exhibitions, lectures, workshops, or concerts and creates a platform to communicate, express ideas, learn from each other and playfully experiment together.Website
