Looking at movements from Göteborg’s contemporary history and popular games such as Mafia and Riot Police, Maja Hammarén investigates the shared ideological meanings of collective games, where social bonds are re-enacted and performed. She delegates their completion to the audience in the form of scores in the public space. One of them is based on the events at the Schillerska Gymnasium during the EU summit in 2001.
