This summer I’m drafting a book on revenge which will be published in 2020 by Pluto Books.
I’m also planning for our summer camp retreat from August 3-10 at Sleeping Giant Provincial Park.
Meanwhile, over the past few months the excellent folks over at The Conversation Artists Podcast have released an epic four-part conversation between me and and host Michael Shaw about my recent book Art After Money, Money After Art: Creative Strategies Against Financialization. It’s so rare and touching for someone to take such keen interest in one’s work: I’m very grateful to Michael and his team for taking the time and care!
- Part one: a discussion of general concepts
- Part two: a conversation about art markets and financialization
- Part three: a discussion of artists’ work with money/debt/finance
- Part four: freeports and art/activism against debt, etc.
Additionally, this summer has been busy with a number of calls for submission, including
- A journal special issue on “Finance Capital and the Ghosts of Empire” (July 22)
- An edited book tentatively titled “Imagining the Unseen: 20 pictures of debt’s empire, then and now” (July 22)
- An October 5 collaborative walking tour of Toronto’s financial district titled “The bank, the mine, the colony, the crime” (July 15)
I’m also these days working on a few new collaborative projects.
Oliver Lerone Schultz, Cassie Thornton, working together under the banner of the Global Ports Authority, are developing an interactive project as part of the programming 2020 European Capital of Culture in Rijeka, commissioned by the phenomenal Rijeka arts and cultural centre Drugo More.
Aris Komporozos-Athanasiou of UCL and I are developing a new project linking the epidemic of youth anxiety to financialization, taking the financialized, anxious university as our site of study.
