Panic Room Session: Market Uncertainty

With Teresa Dillon, Femke Herregraven, Valentina Karga & Pieterjan Grandry, MoneyLab, Jip de Ridder, Fredrik Svensk, Ben Vickers, Elvia Wilk and Helen Kaplinsky

The global market seems to be in perpetual crisis. Beyond the current re-regulation of free trade, what new organizations or systems for resource distribution are emerging in response to this state?

What are the roles of the work of art and the work of artists within the crisis economy? This session invites the participants to reflect on the socio-economic function of art and technology practice in the age of the Three Big Ts (TTIP, TPP, TISA) and the austerity laden post-startup economy.
