Earlier in June, Kleine Humboldt Galerie had the honor to present “Choose Your Own Quarantine”, a text-based game by artists Dasha Ilina and Sofia Haines on KONTINUUM (www.somethingebetween.org). Out of their own quarantines, they collaborated on this witty online game, exploring realities and futures that range from far-fetched dystopias to storylines that hit really close to home. Now they want to share their methods of writing with you!
During the Choose Your Own Quarantine workshop the participants, together with the two creators of the game, will envisage new scenarios to be added to the online game. Fully developed branches of the game will exist online and the participants will be able to leave the workshop with their own stories to share with their community. The goal of this workshop is to activate the social imaginaries of the group, through writing and critical thinking, while speculating on the futures and (re-)written histories that lie ahead.
*Please note that the workshop will be held in English!
