2019 “Probaball” at Live Art for Børn
Kosmologym developed a series of performative games that allow participants to encounter political and ethical issues in original, practical and even fun ways. Probaball explores and practices the ways insurances function to minimise risks. Alluding to the increasing amount of extreme freak weather incidents caused by climate change they say insurance “was born in flames but may be extinguished by floods”. Probaball examines the institution of insurance through a collective risk protection game. Paricipants build cities from wooden building blocks, insure them and then anxiously wait (not for very long) for disasters to strike.
About the Artists
Kosmologym is an art and game design collective. Their games challenge players to encounter others (human/animal, plant, mineral, institution) and place human bodies in physical relationships to global systems.
