We imagine that art and money are old enemies, but this myth actually helps reproduce a violent system of global capitalism and prevents us from imagining alternatives. By exploring the way over 50 radical contemporary artists engage with cash, debt and credit, Art After Money, Money After Art: Creative Strategies Against Financialization identifies and assesses a range of creative strategies for mocking, sabotaging, exiting, decrypting and hacking capitalism today.
Written for activists, artists and scholars, this book makes an urgent call to unleash the power of the radical imagination by any media necessary! Art After Money, Money After Art is published by Pluto Press and, in Canada, Between the Lines. Max Haiven is Canada Research Chair in Culture, Media and Social Justice at Lakehead University in Northwestern Ontario and co-director of the Reimagining Value Action Lab (RiVAL).
