Dive deeper into our current exhibition T(( ))mb: Familiarize yourself with the world of role-playing, asemic research, and engage in an inexorable weaving of fiction and reality....

T(( ))mb is a drawing and role-playing game with elements of storytelling developed by the artist collective OMSK Social Club in the context of their current eponymous solo exhibition at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich.

As players, you will collaborate with the characters from T(( ))mb – Aria, Eden, Hollis, Lennox, and Skyler – to work towards new forms of language. The background to this is the Cassandra Project, an early warning system funded by the German Federal Ministry of Defense between 2017 - 2020, which was designed to predict crises based on the analysis of literature. The fact that states use all available tools and data to be prepared for crises is per se neither surprising nor worrying – provided they handle the knowledge responsibly. But what happens if a program like Cassandra falls into the wrong hands?

It is now up to you, along the synthesization of different languages, through the conduction of asemic research and the negotiation of dialects, to negotiate new, decentralized and horizontal linguistics with your fellow players. As a group, you will search for a language that remains unrecognized by the Cassandra program and thus, you successively build your own T(( ))mbs. But it won't be easy: certain cards or the decisions of other players will influence your actions...

Still sounds a bit cryptic? No worries – we are here to help you with instructions and tips!
