Frederik Lassen & Jakob Raffn have been friends for the past 20 years and professionally working together for the past 6 years.
They have united life sciences, social sciences, philosophy, activism, gaming and IT into progressive projects challenging the structural injustices of societies.
The fundamental work/life approach is entrepreneurial, bottom-up and open source
Politics of Nature – which will be presented at the Overkill Festival – is their latest project reimagining a new operational system for society through a board game, which they hope to make into a digital game in a foreseen future. Who knows maybe with help from festival participators ?
