The exhibition

Who hasn't heard of Fortnite, Mario Bros. or Minecraft? With more than 2.7 billion players worldwide and a turnover of almost $ 160 billion, the video game industry has outnumbered Hollywood. With its temporary exhibition GAMES, the Château de Prangins presents the history of video games from their beginnings in the 1970s to the present day. GAMES follows the development of video games from a historical as well as a technical point of view and invites you to play Asteroids and Space Invaders on arcade machines, but also video games developed in Switzerland. The exhibition is supplemented by several in-depth studies related to subjects such as the Swiss video game industry, the addiction of young people or scenes of violence in certain games. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, the Château de Prangins will offer themed evenings, gaming afternoons and other events not to be missed.
