McKenzie Wark, media theorist and all around brilliant guy, sits down with us this week to talk about his book Gamer Theory. Wark talks about what place games have in the contemporary condition, and how we can use them to understand and critique the world in which we’re living. We also get into a discussion of the 50s and 60s group the Situationist International, and the board game, Kriegspiel, that was designed by one of its key member, Guy Debord.
