LAB #1 in the Art Data Money series
Walkshop and Commodity Consultation
Come for one or both sessions, or just drop in for a chat about MoCC over tea and cake.
For both the morning and afternoon session please BOOK HERE.
10:30am – 1:30pm Walkshop – BOOK HERE.
Join us for a walkshop exploring places, moments and technologies of trade and exchange in the Finsbury Park retail area. We will be out and about for around 90 minutes followed by a group conversation on relations between data, trade and values and how they are affecting our daily lives and spaces. Please dress for the weather and bring a smart phone/camera and means to download images. Coffee and cake provided.
2.00-4:30pm Commodity Consultation – BOOK HERE.
Use LEGO re-creations and animated gifs to explore the values held in your own experiences of trade and exchange. Our Commodity Consultant will be available throughout the afternoon to research your commodity questions, helping you add your own things of value to the Museum of Contemporary Commodities.
Part of Furtherfield’s Art Data Money programme.
The Museum of Contemporary Commodities (MoCC) is neither a building nor a permanent collection of stuff – it’s an invitation. To consider every shop, online store and warehouse full of stuff as if it were a museum, and all the things in it part of our collective future heritage.
MoCC is an art-social science project led by artist Paula Crutchlow (Blind Ditch) and cultural geographer Ian Cook (University of Exeter) in collaboration with Furtherfield.
The project is supported by the Economic and Social Science Research Council, Islington Council, All Change Arts, Exeter City Council and University of Exeter.
