Two talks on economics and the possibilities of art.
-We imagine that art and money are old enemies, but this myth actually helps to reproduce a violent system of global capitalism and prevents us from imagining and building alternatives. By exploring the way over 50 radical contemporary artists engage with cash, debt and credit, Art After Money, Money After Art: Creative Strategies Against Financialization identifies and assesses a range of creative strategies for mocking, sabotaging, exiting, decrypting and hacking capitalism today. Written for artists, activists and scholars, this book makes an urgent call to unleash the power of the radical imagination by any media necessary.
