Anne de Boer’s installation Multi Terra Mining functions both as a host to the works of Eloïse Bonneviot and the Mycological Twist, and as a place for the audience to dwell and contemplate a constantly generating audio and video piece created by the artist. The material is taken from the working group sessions taking place within the installation and in Belgin, overlaid with scenery from the city, creating a stage and backdrop for the other works.

Troll Swamp is a large-scale board game for multiple players, based on the formats and characters from the popular tabletop game Dungeons and Dragons. The game has been developed and tested with various groups in Bergen, and utilises role-play and teamwork in order to act out scenarios against online trolling. Through the analogue nature of the game, a playful situation emerges where one plays an imaginary character. Guided by the Dungeon Master (a storyteller guiding the players through the game), each player will face their own online habits as well as their relationship with others. Troll Swamp has the potential to enable its players to regain confidence, rethink dynamics of interaction and reclaim a different space of expression online.

The Feminist Gaming Group is organising nights of intense multi-player gaming session for beginners. The sessions are semi-private, on RSVP only and are tailored for people with little knowledge of video games. The composition of the group will vary depending on the game played. The Feminist Gaming Group specifically addresses individuals who identify as women and non-binary. The installation features ceramic potteries used to provide snacks and drinks during gaming sessions.
