On February 9th, 2020 the game designer Christwart Conrad was invited to develop a game together with the visitors. Uwe Sülflohn gave insight into his collection of more than 1700 games. His exemplary selection showed thematic excerpts and curiosities, established connections, arranged relatives, illustrated the creative diversity and spanned - not without a wink - an arc from the 1950s to today. The exhibition played with what makes playing an art form - and not only because some games are a real work of art in themselves. Here the "collector's playground" became a large room installation.

The presentation of the collection of board, laying, strategy, dice and parlour games marked the beginning of a series in the ArtLab that will deal with the theme of "playing".
