Conversation with artist Petrit Hoxsha, Kosovo and presentation of the work Yugo: the non-game


– the conversation will be held in English –


Yugo: the non-game is a virtual space where you can drive a car, listen to the radio, and invite people to talk and share the experience with. It is meant to be a space to allow long conversations and hangouts that are often harder to come by when communicating digitally. It is a non-gamification of common voice chat sessions between people playing a game. It is a game for non-gamers.

The idea developed during the months of lockdown and restrictions of social gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020. It had become common that the majority of social interactions would happen via computers, thus the limitations of digital communication, compared to face-to-face conversations, became overwhelmingly apparent. Limitations like the absence of nonverbal communication in text and voice messaging.
