Pablo Esbert Lilienfeld (ES) & Federico Vladimir Strate Pezdirc (AR): Dragon 4
Dragon 4 is the name of a research project that looks at categories and identity through the logics and aesthetics of Fantasy Role Playing Games. Taking as a starting point the highly formalized systems of rules that give shape to the shared fictions of these games, we are interested in exploring how problematic representations of gender, race or class categories are intermingled with fantasy and speculation.
Dragon4: Grimorio is the fourth installment of the Dragon Pieces, a series of works aiming to find playful representations of collectivity that question hegemonic ways of belonging and narrating ourselves.
