The Return of the Return to Castle Wolfenstein – The Fuck Chairs

By: Michael Morley and Morgan Oliver


The Audio Foundation invited The Fuck Chairs to produce an installation and performance for the opening of the Nowhere Festival in 2016. Combining ongoing video gaming and digital audio research TFC produced a discussion around ideas of immortality, play, memory, substance, and art. Relying heavily on the extended gothic metaphors of Death Metal and employing thousands of plastic toy animals, blocks, cars, boats, planes, and soldiers of every conceivable nation, and Spyro the dragon, the installation was a celebration of post-realization rave culture suspended in a time loop.
