[OPE-L] Alternative Economics, Alternative Societies (Alternative Art Practices)

From: glevy@PRATT.EDU
Date: Sat May 21 2005 - 12:14:43 EDT

An activist artistic project by Oliver Ressler that has been exhibited
in  many countries:

"[...] the focus is on diverse concepts and models for alternative
economies  and societies which all share a rejection by the capitalist
system of rule. For  each concept an interview was carried out from which
an English video  was produced.  In the exhibition these single-channel
20 to 37 minute videos  re each shown on a separate monitor thus forming
the central element of the  artistic installation. [...]

The plan is to expand the offerings in the future.  *Transcripts of the
videos (with John H, Nancy Folbre, Michael Albert and others) are
available at the  above site*.  There is also a transcript of an interview
with Oliver Ressler.

Hans:  maybe the 'socialism' list will be interested in this site?

In solidarity, Jerry
