The Centre for Plausible Economies brings together artistic action and critical thinking to reclaim the economy. It is envisioned as a new platform for mapping and reimagining economic systems, in the arts and beyond. The Centre will gather enthusiasts, activists, artists, and theoreticians who will activate artistic competences and communal imagination to take economic matters into their own hands. Bridging critical research with practical experimentation, they will not only talk the talk but also walk the walk.
The 2018 programme focuses on ‘Redrawing the Economy’ as a first step towards re-organising and appropriating economic diversity as an everyday phenomena we are all part of in shaping and culturing.
Initiators: Kathrin Böhm and Kuba Szreder
