Dundee Arts Cafe - The Art of Making Trouble

  • Joseph Delappe (Presenter)
  • Urch, J. (Organiser)

    Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - public lecture/debate/seminar


    Artist and activist, Prof Joseph DeLappe, likes making trouble. From hacking drones to selling despotic dictators on eBay, nothing is off limits, as he uses his over 30 years’ experience in online gaming and sculpture to create projects that react to modern politics and warfare. In his most well-known work, Joseph infiltrated the US Army recruitment game, “America’s Army’ and created memorials to US soldiers who had lost their lives in the most recent Iraq War.

    Recently hired as the Professor of Games and Tactical Media at Abertay University, Joseph will discuss his past and future work, and provide a short history of political activism through computer games, art and design.
