For over thirty-five years, audiences around the world have followed the adventures of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, Jedi heroes
from a galaxy far, far away. And now, a highly interactive and exciting exhibition comes to the Vienna galaxy with STAR WARS™ Identities to present 200 impressive original objects from the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art. The exhibition is about a character-driven
adventure into identity in which the visitors explore the nature of their identity through the Star Wars universe. They can
experience the Star Wars characters in a completely new way and go on a multi-media identity quest to find out: What Forces shape you?Closely interwoven with the collection and the educational content, this creative journey will use technology to help visitors
of all ages create their own personal and original Star Wars identity by incorporating elements of their own identity with
fictional elements. Visitors will then leave with their own unique character, inspired by the Star Wars universe.As well as being an entertaining cinematic art exhibition, which demonstrates finds such as photography, designer pieces and
sketches, the pop culture exhibition is also very educational. There is barely another film phenomenon that has shaped pop
culture more profoundly than Star Wars. The space saga deals with the global parallels of myths, fairy tales, rites, stories
and rituals, ultimately embracing the idea of forging a sense of identity. The exhibition offers lots of approaches to this.
The reason for this is a team of experts from the fields of psychology, neuropsychology, biochemistry and genetics, who carry
out cutting-edge, state-of-the-art investigations into identity in STAR WARS™ Identities.© & TM 2015 Lucasfilm Ltd. All Rights Reserved. Used Under Authorization.

Games and Pop Culture: Interactions with phenomena of pop culture in the history of digital games, using the example of Star Wars
A talk by Jogi Neufeld, SUBOTRON
Sun, 6 Mar 2016, 4 p.m.
MAK FORUM on the exhibition STAR WARSTM Identities
Since the initial success of video games at the beginning of the 1970s, it has been possible to observe forms and symbols
from pop culture being adopted in design and gameplay. In turn, the games medium later had an effect on other areas of popular
culture with early blockbusters and the first genre stars. “Old” media like film and comics finally accepted the new pop icons
at the beginning of the 1980s.
Using the example of Star Wars this talk shows the effect mass phenomena of pop culture have, how they are reflected in new media, and how they are enshrined
in our everyday culture.
