Special Event: Why Can't We Do This IRL?


Event passed

Tickets no longer available.

Part of the Autumn/Winter 2019 season

Join us for the launch of a new immersive 360 virtual reality experience by artist Megan Broadmeadow that looks at gaming violence and asks, why can't we do this in real life?

In November 2018, Shirrako, a YouTuber, shared a video of his RDR2 avatar killing a suffragette, creating huge controversy due to its violence against a female character. This immersive experience delves into the ethical questions behind gaming, creating an art piece which places the character that killed the suffragette on virtual trial.

Commissioned by FACT as part of Young at Art, a partnership between FACT, Open Eye Gallery and National Museums Liverpool and funded by Arts Council England and The Baring Foundation and with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
