Game of Climate - The Power of Art and Game Theory in a Sustainable Future

The artists Lars Arrhenius and Eric Ericson meet SSE Professor Tore Ellingsen in a conversation about game theory, art and climate. The seminar will start off with a game, come and play with us!

As we experience anthropocenic climate change we are in many ways engaged in altering thinking and lifestyle. There various ways of simulating such experiences. In the board game KALAS by the artists Lars Arrhenius and Eric Ericson, players are forced to navigate the globalized and interconnected world of today in a satirical guise. The game is based on recent research in climate science and political policy. The artists are interested in how playing the game might generate ideas or reflections. How  might art-based playfulness stimulate the players to tackle such serious issues? How does this approach resonate or complement  more traditional ways to exploring games in social sciences? 

After first playing the game KALAS, the Stockholm School of Economic´s Misum (Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets) and Art Initiative  invite you to discuss it with the artists, Lars Arrhenius and Eric Ericson, and one of the school´s foremost economic authorities on Game Theory, Professor Tore Ellingsen.  

Can art in combination with game theory help us envisage a more sustainable future? Heartily welcome to a serious playfulness!

The seminar is moderated by the Misum researcher Ebba Sjögren.

January 17, 16.00-17.30, in Stora salen, Stockholm School of Economics, Holländargatan 32.
