Computer games could be art – if someone made themselves historiography
For computer games, most people have the same relationship as to chewing gum. Who does not like to chew himself, looks only dirty stains on the strain stick. Who does not like to play himself, knows from the horensagen brutal sliding games, which allegedly exclose massacre under schoolern. In this regard, henry jenkins as a literature professor is unobniotic. He leads the program for comparative media science at the massachusetts institute of technology (with), whose research approach he with the words "from homer to the holodeck" describes. Jenkins now calls computer games the "liveliest art form of 21. Century". Cinema, tv movie and jazz have also been despised until they established themselves as art forms.
At that time, in 1924, the american literature and art critics hilbert seldes published the book "the seven liveby arts". He was kept at best, he paid the broadway musical, comics and the hollywood movie to those seven arts and the hollywoodfilm. Seldes looked reflected in them the everyday life of industrial society and urban life. He called the artists he made art not only to their topics for alive, but also because they worked them with technologies of the gewart. All this also meets for computer games. Jenkins sees the time they came "as new popular art, the asthetics of the 21. Century shapes" take. Goods about the self-reliable use of the metaphor of the in a figure slip in "impress john malkovich" without the computer game possible?
