Sowjet-Unterzögersdorf/Sektor 2/The Adventure Game video game, AT, 2009
For years monochrom has been occupied with the construction, analysis and reflexion of alternative worlds and models of recording history. monochrom projects are treating this field partly as a discussion with concepts deriving from popular culture, science and philosophy, partly as a direct reference to science fiction and fantasy fan culture. monochrom’s project Soviet-Unterzögersdorf – The Adventure Game is the implementation of a ‘false reminiscence’ into the Austrian cultural memory – a fictitious country taking the shape of a computer game adventure. The enclave Soviet-Unterzögersdorf, created by Monochrom, is the last remaining USSR republic, situated in the Austrian wine growing area.
