Culture is the sum of many games, where literature has an impressive, entertaining and innovative task. Common rules and agreements are sought in science, teams are built in politics, and the power of individual achievements is also cherished in society’s hero stories.

In the fall of 2024, on the stages of the Turku Book Fair, an overview of current literature and a discussion atmosphere will be created again, and we will get to know playfulness as a basis for narrative and thinking — without forgetting history’s power games, sports, fan culture, cosplay and larping. The games combine film, theater, spoken and visual arts. What will be the influence of the gaming world on art?
