Czech Centre's Vitrinka gallery

Hosted By: Czech Centre

Find out all about the contemporary Czech gaming industry, discover (and play!) fascinating games from global hits to indie games by small studios, and learn about the creative processes behind them. With a presentation by journalist and photographer Pavel Dobrovský, leading Czech expert on the gaming industry.

Join the Private View (free) of the exhibition project Infinite Universes – Czech Games and Their Global Success, which introduces contemporary Czech gaming industry in all its complexity. While showcasing individual games, the exhibition also presents the creative process behind the game making with focus on selected elements that define individual studios and their approaches to chosen themes, as well as the games’ educational and artistic value. The selection of exhibits curated by Miroslav Žák, founder of Visiongame, focuses on audio-visual qualities of the games as well as their relationship to Czech culture and history. Czech video games often reflect the Czech tradition of authorial animation. They excel in unique solutions for their inner structures, incorporating audio design, and in the way they work with stories, including many social themes. Moreover, video games developed in Czechia gain international recognition and awards for their creative approaches, inspiring messages, artistic qualities, and educational characteristics. Czechia is home to more than 130 developer companies, employing over 2000 people. New specialised university programmes are being made, schools, incubators, or accelerators, pushing the whole industry forward.

What can you expect? At the exhibition the visitors will be able to play a great selection of Czech video games on one of our four gaming stations, sit back and listen to the music from the video games by Czech and international composers on vinyl, immerse themselves in the fascinating world of video graphic art, explore figures and toys featuring characters from the games and watch one of the characters being printed on a 3D printer. Complimetary drinks will be provided.

The exhibition will be on until 31st August. Openining times: Tuesday – Friday, 10am-5pm
