Power Game With Liliane Lijn

Power Game at ICA, 2009, (c) Liliane Lijn

Join a rare performance of Liliane Lijn's Power Game staged live at Tate Exchange

Originally staged by Liliane Lijn during the Festival for Chilean Liberation at the Royal College of Art, London, in 1974, Power Game is both a game and a live unrehearsed performance that uses gambling to investigate the politics of identity and power. Played as an altered game of chemin de fer using a pack of word cards devised by the artist, Power Game explores the power of words, meanings, and misconceptions through spectacle and play.
