We live in crisis.
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.

OTHER CONTENTS
Vasiljeva’s work cherishes the ability to foster relationships and create communities with objects and beings beyond the immediate human realm be they rhetorical tools, symbols, found objects, primary materials or plants. The surreal approach simmers in her inclination to abide more to dream logic than scientific law, temporarily summoning together impulses, objects and occurrences under a spell of a particular confabulation independent of linear clock time and empirics. By Anna Gritz
Since I was a little girl, I have always invented worlds. I used cut-outs. They were sold all over, thin cardboard figures of movie stars or iconic figures of the time with paper pages of clothes which you cut out and put on your doll as she or he went about living the adventures I invented for them.
