Games Are Forbidden in the Labyrinth / Javier Téllez

Roma Publication 234

In this artist book Téllez gives answers to 64 questions on 'How Do You Play Chess?' by linking them to specific text fragments and images that explore psychiatric confinement, surveillance architecture, and the game of chess as strategically interrelated systems. Games Are Forbidden in the Labyrinth opens new spaces for play across formerly closed systems and inverts the power dynamics between surveillance tower and cell. This book is expanding on Téllez’s exhibitions at San Francisco Art Institute and REDCAT, Los Angeles. With texts by Ruth Estévez, Dieter Roelstraete, and Hesse McGraw.
