Economics; the art of making money? Performativer Vortrag / Performantive lecture
“Making money” denotes different things; primarily to earn money, but also printing or counterfeiting money, organizing local exchange trading systems, even designing alternative currency. The multivalence of the phrase delineates the space that my research has occupied. The space of representation, of circulation and dissemination, where power employs art(ists) and images to communicate its authority and to construct economic value, masking the self referentiality of money. In my presentation I will describe this space and suggest different strategies on how its possible to challenge economic value, from different plateaux; from psychoanalysis, from history, from linguistics, from philosophy, from the arts, and from economics itself.
