Condemned to Play

In 1560, Bruegel the Elder produced an intriguing painting: two hundred children literally invade a Flemish town. Projected into the heart of Bruegel's work, you move from one group of children to another – the young inhabitants of the painting seem troubled by a disappearance.
This immersive experience brings us into extraordinarily close contact with the characters peopling the painting "Die Kinderspiele" who we see on a different scale, as if we ourselves have changed size to join them in their children's games. We are no longer in the museum or standing in front of an almost 500-year-old oil-on-wood painting, but plunged into the joyous confusion of a children's playground. "1, 2, 3 Bruegel", an interactive experience based on the same painting, will be available in early 2019 on Viveport, Oculus and Steam.
