Gallery for games and other electronic, interactive and transmedia art, home venue for the festival Electrodome.
Playcentric Industries & Institute runs a container gallery that is temporarily placed at Masthuggskajen. The founder Jasmine Idun Isdrake was asked by Boid/Älvstranden Utveckling to design parts of Masthuggskajen in the center of Gothenburg that will be open for the public until the end of 2016 while the new building plan is being set. This is a great spot in the heart of the city, right by the water.
The gallery is also a lab and test area for sustainable solutions like wind and solar power, and other initiatives are also welcome to suggest activities in this space. To follow the development, meet the awesome people making things here and keep track of events, check the Facebook page.
There are currently 3 containers in the gallery, one is owned by the founder and the other two are owned by The Cat Eyed People’s Playground, and Henrik Wallgren and Lars Lincoln.
Gallery location: Masthuggskajen, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Beats & Ord (Beats & Words) is an interactive installation stemming from the sound universe of hip hop. As a visitor you are invited into the room to create and explore the beats that fill the space, and you are surrounded by signs with and without light presenting words taken from Swedish rap from the eighties and onwards.
During the Gothenburg Culture Festival, August 20th, a plastic wrap wall will be put up open for everyone who wants to try graffiti. It will be up and open 2 pm – 4 pm. You need to bring your own cans and mask. We will have a small supply of cans that can be bought at purchase price.

Today many of us have moved, either by force or by choice. The six of us, based in different cities in Europe, are all movers and together we are exploring the concept of home and the creation of feeling home when moving and creating new homes. We believe that the more people understand about the feeling of home, the better one can relate to one’s neighbors. Hence, in this project, we are asking and reflecting on how might one take the feeling of home into one’s own hands and what are the needs we must meet to take home into one’s own hands while our communities continue to develop and people continue to move from place to place.
We need your input Gothenburg! We welcome you to an afternoon of discussions, experiments, and new experiences about home – let’s create a deeper understanding together. Open Saturday August 20, between 1pm and 5pm. At 3pm there will be a group talk, while the other activities are drop-in format.
The project is part of the Balticlab 4.0 programme organised by the Swedish Institute and Council of the Baltic Sea States. And the interactions created and collected in Gothenburg will be content included in the programs final lab held in Moscow this September.
Group members: Alexander Bratt (Stockholm), Agnieszka Bułacik (Berlin), Samantha Hookway (Gothenburg), Szymon Keller (Barcelona), Elliot Silva (Berlin), Agnieszka Wojciechowicz (Oslo).
