MONEYLAB#2: ECONOMIES OF DISSENT
Talks, art & workshops on economic empowerment
Pakhuis de Zwijger 3 – 4 December 2015, Amsterdam
The Institute of Network Cultures presents MONEYLAB#2: ECONOMIES OF DISSENT – an international symposium hosting artists, activists, programmers and academics who probe, challenge and hack today’s global economy.
What political imperatives shape the economy of dissent? What are the different views on the redistribution of wealth and the exchange of value out there? How can we re-design our financial infrastructure?
Beyond moral outrage, important first steps are being taken towards systemic interventions in the global austerity economy. We witness an impressive amount of financial counter-concepts, works of art, digital currencies, tools and hacks which give shape to an emerging economy of dissent. This new economy operates across borders, on different scales, from sole acts of defiance to a collective ‘oxi’ in Greece. It is expressed variously as: strategy, circumvention, innovation, visualization, and making-do.
Two days of talks, performances and workshops unfurl a raft of financial interventions like visualizations of shadow economies, a guidebook on how to extort money from banks, Robin Hood-style financial hacks, peer-to-peer insurance companies, financial leak platforms, and blockchain initiatives for the commons.
