Online Performance / Video: 16:14 min, 2018

Operation Jane Walk is based on the dystopian multiplayer shooter "Tom Clancy’s: The Division". In this work, the game’s digital warzone is appropriated with the help of an artistic operation. Within the rules of the game’s software, the militaristic environment is being reused for a pacifistic city tour. The urban flâneurs avoid the combats whenever possible and become peaceful tourists of a digital world, which is a detailed replica of Midtown Manhattan. While walking through the post-apocalyptic city, issues such as architecture history and urbanism are discussed.

Concept and realization: Robin Klengel, Leonhard Müllner / Camera and editing: Leonhard Müllner / Narrator: Jacob Banigan / Cast: Moke Rudolf-Klengel, Franz-Josef Windisch-Graetz / Filmed in Tom Clancy’s: The Division
