Exhibit See: Feng Mengbo's "Long March: Restart" Giant Video Game at MoMA PS1

Feng MengboMuseums can be a bit of a drag for the average twentysomething Xbox junkie, but the Bejing-based artist Feng Mengbo's new exhibit has a little something to get us off of the couch. Taking cues from 8-bit side-scrolling games of the past like Double Dragon and Contra, "Long March: Restart" is a fully developed beat-'em-up video game based on communist China. In the game, MoMA PS1 visitors use a wireless controller to play as a Red Army soldier who uses cans of Coca-Cola to destroy evil scorpions, squads of Commie troops, and a cast of characters from popular Nintendo games like Street Fighter and Super Mario. The exhibit is on view now at PS1, and is displayed on the museum walls by eight huge projectors. Hit the jump for additional images of the show. It's on display until April 4.
