Angela Washko Survey Exposes Misogyny In and Through Gaming

”Point of View,” the first European survey exhibition of intervenionist artist Angela Washko opens at STUK, Leuven (BE). The show includes Heroines with Baggage (2011) and The Council on Gender Sensitivity and Behavioral Awareness in World of Warcraft (2012, image)—pre-Gamergate exposes of misogyny in gaming—as well her forays into the odious world of pickup artists. The latter theme emerges in BANGED (2015) and The Game: The Game (2018) where Washko interviews Roosh V, and explores the ”tactics and practices” of the pickup community in a dating simulator.
