Hidden Economies: A seminar on economic possibility

Hidden Economies: A seminar on economic possibility raises a discussion about hidden economies–existing within, next to, beside, and around capitalism. The seminar is inspired by the work of feminist, economic geographers JK Gibson-Graham (Julie Graham and Katherine Gibson), who worked on several publications and projects that sought to destabilize the “monster” of a capitalist economy. Today, Katherine Gibson continues the work she and the late Julie Graham began with projects like Community Economies (co-founded in 2009) and the publication of Take Back the Economy: An Ethical Guide for Transforming Our Communities (2013, University of Minnesota Press).
Capitalist processes shape our daily experiences but do they define them? How and where are people creating economies that ignore the dominant economic system? How do these economies–shared, exchange based, micro-local, etc.–function and what do they look like? Are they temporary or are they sustainable?
Hidden Economies consists of presentations and workshops from artists, activists, and scholars focused on issues of economy within their work. The seminar focuses on how cultural work may contribute to shedding light on economic difference and articulating new economic realities. Central for this project is the idea that economies are always diverse and in the making.
Hidden Economies is extended through partnerships with three organizations: Pixelache–Finland, The Centre for Ecological Economics and Ethics–Norway, and Connectors Malmö/Tapori Tiffins–Malmö. These three organizations will host events to share the Hidden Economies newspaper and video program in Fall/Winter 2014-2015. The curated video program focuses on failed, lost, and new economies. The newspaper includes articles and images from seminar participants among others and will first be available during the seminar.

Hidden Economies: A seminar on economic possibility

Hidden Economies: A seminar on economic possibility har samlet en række kunstnere, aktivister og forskere for at diskutere Hidden Economies, som eksisterer indenfor, ved siden af og rundt om kapitalismen. Seminaret er inspireret af feministiske geografer Julie Graham og Katherine Gibson (JK Gibson-Graham). Gibson-Graham har udgivet adskillige publikationer og arbejdet med projekter som søger at destabilisere og introducere brud i ”the monster of capitalist economy”. I dag fortsætter Katherine Gibson det arbejde hun, og den nu afdøde Julie Graham, begyndte med projekter som for eksempel Community Economies, som de sammen grundlagde i 2009, og udgivelsen af Take Back the Economy: An Ethical Guide for Transforming Our Communities (2013, University of Minnesota Press).
Kapitalistiske processer skaber vores daglige erfaringer men definerer de dem også? Hvordan og hvor skaber folk økonomier, som ignorerer det dominerende økonomiske system? Hvorledes fungerer disse dele-, bytte-, mikrolokale- økonomier og hvordan ser de ud? Er de midlertidige eller er de bæredygtige?
Hidden Economies er et to-dags seminar med præsentationer og workshops med kunstnere, aktivister og forskere, som arbejder med spørgsmål vedrørende økonomi. Seminaret sætter fokus på, hvorledes kulturelt arbejde kan kaste lys over økonomisk diversitet og artikulere nye økonomiske realiteter. Centralt står ideen om at der eksisterer forskelligartede økonomier og at disse altid er under udvikling.
I forlængelse af seminaret har Hidden Economies indgået samarbejde med 3 organisationer i Norden: Pixelache, Finland, Eva Bakkeslet sammen med Centre for Ecological Economics and Ethics, Norge og Connectors Malmö/Tapori Tiffins, Sverige. Efterår og vinter 2014/2015 vil disse organisationer afholde events for at dele Hidden Economies videoprogram og avis. Det kuraterede video program fokuserer på forfejlede, tabte og nye økonomier. Avisen indeholder tekster af bl.a. seminardeltagere og vil blive udgivet første gang i forbindelse med seminaret.
