Other : Lara Croft:ism
(Written using Google to translate German)
In 1999 an exhibition called 'Lara Croft:ism' was created and was based around a magazine of the same name, written by Manuela Barth. It was made up of lectures, films, performances, workshops and panel discussions, in which professionals from various artistic, business and media fields took part. One part of the project consisted of a group of artists, who took the opportunity to learn more about digital technologies and video games, whilst the other part were professionals within the subject of technology, who were "interested in aspects of artistic-scientific analysis and interpretation". The works of the following were used to aid the project:
Eidos Interactive Germany approved of the project as they were also there on the last night of events.
The project, which took place in Munich, was held over 5 days and organised by Manuela Barth and Barbara U. Schmidt. Below is the schedule:
On the LaraCroft:ism website, not only could you find out all about the event - the individual talks, how the project came about, the time table and order a copy of the magazine for yourself - a desktop wallpaper was also given out.
The magazine and website kept updating until what appears to be in sometime 2004. However, there was another project within LaraCroft:ism that was created in 2002 - a video titled 'The Ultimate Game Girl' that "sheds light on the tension between the diverse demands and expectations that girls have and their integration into economic interests".
