During the middle of the Summer Show, a discussion event in the lecture theatre as part of Graduate Futures Week. And as I am Camberwell, I am able to attend.
It was a lively and though provoking event. It was good to meet Samson Kambalu at this event, and afterwards we met up by my interim display and had a good discussion about post-colonialism and my practice.
Paul Mason - beyond capitalism
Feudal to capitalism to something else. To post capitalism. Possibly neoliberalism.
Andrew Keean. Book. The internet is not the answer.
Q for artists. The universal basic income. Work defines identity. But if loosing jobs that’s not sustainable. Pensions are actually an example of basic income.

Art then becomes… not a commodity but a space for cultural production.
Some people will adapt better than others. Entrepreneurs. How to ensure people already excluded are not excluded. Avoid creating a us and them.

The gift. Distribution.
Book. The gift, Lewis Hyde.
Gift must be passed on.comments powered by Disqus
