Playing at war: an up-close look at childhood games of battle and conflict

This interactive workshop will explore the meaning of game-playing and childhood in the context of global conflict.


Some of the most familiar board games in the world are games about war: Risk, Battleships… even chess. But what about games that were made and played in the shadow of war? Games like the notorious ‘Jews Out!’ game, for example, which reinforced the aggressive antisemitic message of Nazi propaganda? This interactive workshop, hosted by the Wiener Library with Catherine Howell of the Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood, will explore the meaning of game-playing and childhood in the context of global conflict.
