MoneyLab #7: Outside of Finance

When: November 14, 2019 -
November 15, 2019

Where: Tolhuistuin IJpromenade 2 Amsterdam

On feminist economics, social payments, corporate crime and the “blokechain”

The Institute of Network Cultures is proud to announce the return of MoneyLab to Amsterdam on November 14 and 15 2019! This home-based seventh edition is filled with workshops, performances and discussions on pressing financial issues. With artists, academics, activists, and geeks we explore what role art, activism and design can play in expanding the financial ecology of alternatives.

What is happening outside of the system of global finance? At MoneyLab#7 we look into the different responses to Brexit and the spread of right-wing nationalism on European soil, outside of the libertarian start-ups with their often masculine lingoism and preoccupations. Are there any counter-design strategies to the corporatization and nationalization of finance? Can we design a crypto-economy that values care work and focuses on equity and solidarity? How do we relate to the emerging regulatory regimes that want to “civilize” fintech? With platforms operating as banks, can we speak of a gentrification of the payment industry?
