Total Refusal is a pseudo-marxist media guerilla focused on the artistic intervention and appropriation of mainstream video games. They upcycle video games in order to reveal the political apparatus beyond the glossy and hyperreal textures of this media.

Since its foundation in 2018, the collective has been awarded with numerous prizes like the Diagonale Film Award for the Best Short Doc, the Contemporary Visual Arts Award of Styria Province and Vimeo Staff Pick Award among others. Total Refusal has been screened at more than 130 film and video festivals like Berlinale (2020), Doc Fortnight at MOMA New York and IDFA Amsterdam (2018) and they been exhibited at various exhibition spaces like the Architecture Biennial Venice 2021, the HEK Basel (2020) and the Ars Electronica Linz (2019). Their short film Hardly working won the European Short Film 2023 at the 36th European Film Awards.

At Kino inak A4 we will present a lecture, and a selection of Total Refusal’s films, accompanied by a Q&A two members of the collective, Michael Stumpf and Leonhard Müllner. All parts of the event will be in English.
