GSFF welcomes Austrian artists Robin Klengel and Leonhard Müllner (Total Refusal) for a live performance of Operation Jane Walk, in which the digital war zone of a video game is appropriated with the help of an artistic intervention. Accompanied by two festival guest participants, the urban flâneurs avoid the combats and become peaceful tourists in a post-apocalyptic digital replica of New York City. 

The performers promenade the digital battleground and explore the possibilities (and impossibilities) of new media technologies, considering issues of architectural history and urbanism. Watch them evade the gunfire, accompanied by a jaunty playlist of soothing jazz and folk.


In Total Refusal, artists Robin Klengel, Leonhard Müllner and Michael Stumpf aim to peacefully appropriate the existing mechanics of digital gaming media in order to find new use for their virtual combat zones. As such, Total Refusal is a pacifistic statement, realised in digital space.

This event is supported by Austrian Cultural Forum.
