Festival Theme: Playground
They develop you in childhood. They train your concentration and teach you to think a few steps ahead in your teenage years. They can serve as a source of entertainment or a tool for manipulation for adults.
Psychiatrist Eric Berne stated that "we all play games all the time, though we don't always realise it." The only shame is that you can't restore your 'life' in our reality.
In the real world, politicians compete with one another to protect their own "playground." The board game that used to capture everyone's attention, unfortunately, does not distract from the sounds of shelling in the shelter. And while video games remain a way of escapism for some, others use their gaming experience to control combat drones.
PLAYGROUNDS is the theme of the 11th LINOLEUM Festiva
