Rob is 28 (but needs his beard to actually look like it), loves music, adventures and spontaneous people. His scribblings are about these things too, so if you share his interests, stay tuned!

One of my biggest childhood friends was Sonic, the infamous blue hedgehog. This all seems so long ago to me, but Mediamatic is opening an exhibition tomorrow that will seriously please the even more vintage gamers. With Arcade, they present a showing of the classics. Think Pong, Donkey Kong and Pac Man. Next to these historic beasts they have a set of newly developed interactive gaming installations on show and several works shops and other side activities. Oh and I will hopefully get my nostalgic Sonic fix in the next phase of their exhibition, called consoles! (are you listening Mediamatic?)

“Arcade is an expanding collection of old and new games and technologies. We kick off with a collection of rare vintage arcade video games operating alongside our newly developed interactive installations. Exhibition space meets arcade. Come play with us. December 19 till March 27. Opening on Saturday December 18, 20:00.”

Opening: December 18th, 20:00
