An exhibition of autobiographical video games.
Each work tells a different story, and different stories often need different ways of arousing empathy: different forms of experiencing, or in this case.... Reliving.
Relive / Herleef presents games that give new insights into what games can be, both in terms of content and form.
It showcases topics such as mental health issues, war experiences, loss of loved ones, body image and eating disorders. But also positive experiences such as the value of peace, family and LGBTQ+ love are highlighted.
Some games are made by teams over the course of several years, and were published globally. Some are made by one person in several days, as a form of personal expression. But they all share heartfelt personal experiences, each in their own way.
