After recently completing her long-term video game project "The Game: The Game", artist Angela Washko discusses the multi-year research process behind her pick-up artist dating simulator. Washko will screen excerpts from her interview with a seduction coach who has been dubbed “The Web’s Most Infamous Misogynist” and highlight instructional DVDs, books, and hidden-camera videos created by a community of pick-up artists to teach men how to interact with and seduce women. The talk will close with a discussion and a participatory play-through of The Game: The Game facilitated by the artist.
