Yet Another Way of Sharing the Pie: An Afternoon with Alternative Economies - Kate Rich / Feral Trade (Bristol)
Kate Rich explains the mechanics behind the Bristol-based Feral Trade network: how interpersonal contact networks are used to ship grocery items around the world (our coffee for the Making Use exhibition was shipped from Mexico using the network).
The exhibition Making Use hosted experiments at the intersection of art and economy. Our invited guests talked about artistic practices that both undermine commonly accepted economic rules and broaden our economic imagination. The guests asked what would happen if the principles of these alternative economies were applied everywhere in our daily lives, in a “do it yourself” and “use it together” way.
