Company Drinks heartily invites you to the public opening of the Centre for Plausible Economies, with a programme of speeches, drinks and snacks. The launch starts at 5.30pm with short talks by Dr Katherine Gibson, Kathrin Böhm and Kuba Szreder, moderated by Alistair Hudson.
Economic geographer Dr Katherine Gibson, co-author of Take Back the Economy, will present the concept of diverse economies, and the artist and founder of Company Drinks Kathrin Böhm will outline the economy as a realm of everyday practice and field of artistic intervention. Curator and researcher Kuba Szreder will talk about the economic underpinnings of the current expansion of art beyond the field of art. The discussion will be moderated by Alistair Hudson, Manchester Art Gallery and Office of Useful Art.
The Community Economy Research Network (CERN) is launching the ‘Redrawing the Economy’ website, which concludes two years of action research, featuring cognitive mapping tools, diagrams and a growing collection of ‘Economy as Iceberg’ iterations.
Afterwards Company Drinks invites everyone to drinks and snacks in the gardens of its new premises in Barking Park.
