We just played it again and for the first time in Berlin. It was visionary!
During DMY Berlin YKON had the opportunity to present and further develop the YKON GAME.
Let us quickly and briefly re-introduce this provocative and highly entertaining research tool and also share with you the next opportunity to partake and take over:
The YKON GAME is a beautifully bizarre journey and collective attempt to alter the world. Instead of solving the common problems that we are facing. The YKON GAME seeks to uncover the ideas that we haven’t payed attention to yet – ideas that are sometimes wonderful and sometimes terrifying. Other thoughts that could forever alter the world and the way we live in it.
The YKON GAME is based on a simple thought experiment: Imagine that the world is brought to a complete halt. Everything stops. No more business as usual. Everyone has to consider a new way for things to be. With the world being frozen, you and your fellow players can tinker with the world as you please. What will you change? How do you convince others to go along with your changes? And what about the consequences?
Through the 1960’s architect & utopian thinker, Buckminster Fuller developed the “World Game”. It was his master plan for our planet Earth. A tool that would formulate a comprehensive design and science approach to all the problems of the world. Inspired by Fuller’s vision we have taken its core ideas and developed a contemporary, poetic and YKONic version to provide a new perspective on the future of our world.
YKON cordially invites you to be one of our next predestined agitators to embark on a three hour journey to the limits of utopia and beyond. Together with our facilitators you’ll be experiencing deep collaboration, mind bending interludes and progressive change in the making.
We’ll be playing during the opening weekend of 37 manifestos in Berlin!
