Ricocheting from crash to crash, the global economy is in a techno-maniacal race to the bottom that sidelines increasingly large swaths of the world’s population.
As our homes, property, and increasingly bodies are offered up as collateral to the tyranny of financialization, it’s necessary to ask “how did we get here?”

Introducing an upcoming video series of economic PSAs marking the 10 year anniversary of the 2008 Financial Crisis.

It’s fitting to think of Kris Lemsalu at this junction of mortality and carnival who, as I sit typing, is busy concocting her blend of fantasia-meets-reality for the Estonian Pavilion at this year’s Venice Biennale. Text by Anya Harrison
