Play— an essential part of social development and a cornerstone of childhood. Often experienced through youthful fantasies where we wear the world as costumes: we play house, play jobs, play war. The toy aisle stands split down a gendered middle of blue and pink zones. How do systems of capitalism/violence intersect with play and uphold social norms and dynamics of privilege and power? How can play be used to subvert, explore and resist these structures? Who is play designed for and how does that alter it’s intentions? ”Batteries Not Included” asks interested artists to consider these questions in addition to any other explorations of the concept of play.
