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

In conversation with Margot Norton
When Deller’s art deals with music, it seems to describe a world I knew well in my teens: a more or less alternative scene, where the itch for independence often went hand in hand with a sense of melancholy and loneliness, of not fitting in, which was also a political statement of nonconformity and rebellion.
