Launch event at Columbia University
Throughout the history of capitalism, artists and other workers have appropriated, subverted, hijacked and creatively misused currencies as a means to reveal, challenge and reimagine power. This hands-on workshop explores this history and gets participants to think strategically about how to hack, reinvent or mess with money to create activist spectacles, build solidarity and awaken the radical imagination.
Part of the launch events for Max Haiven’s Art After Money, Money After Art (see page for more NYC events Oct 7 and 11)
Max Haiven is Canada Research Chair in Culture, Media and Social Justice at Lakehead University in Northwest Ontario and director of the ReImagining Value Action Lab (RiVAL). His previous books include Crises of Imagination, Crises of Power: Capitalism, Creativity and the Commons, The Radical Imagination: Social Movement Research in the Age of Austerity (with Alex Khasnabish) and Cultures of Financialization: Fictitious Capital in Popular Culture and Everyday Life.
