Time 10:00
Date 20/01/18
Price £15

A day-long programme of panel discussions, screenings and workshops exploring the relationship between financial technologies, artistic practice and contemporary culture.

MoneyLab is a programme of critical research exploring the connections between contemporary art, financial activism and digital culture. Previously organised by the Amsterdam-based Institute of Networked Cultures, this fourth edition of MoneyLab brings together artists, designers and researchers investigating and imagining the critical potential after money.

Panels, talks, screenings and workshops will inspect the borderlands between critical art-making, decentralised financial technologies, collective organisation, and civil disobedience. Sessions will explore data monetization, digital labour unions, artist run tax-havens, co-operative crypto-currencies and decentralised technology as an open source distribution model. Participants include Ruth Catlow (Furtherfield), Geert Lovink (Institute of Network Cultures), Brett Scott (The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance) & Demystification Committee.

The full prgramme will be announced shortly on the Somerset House website.
