Videogames Do Belong in the Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) just announced it has acquired 14 videogames for a new category of artworks there, and some in the art world are aflutter.

“Sorry MoMA, video games are not art,” argues Guardian art critic Jonathon Jones. “They sure are,” asserts MoMA curator Paola Antonelli. “But they are also design, and a design approach is what we chose for this new foray into this universe. The games are selected as outstanding examples of interaction design.” (Culture)
