Hello! I'm Rose Marie Barrientos, born in Bolivia, raised around the world. I’m an independent art historian and researcher on "art & economy", co-founder of Art & Flux at Sorbonne University, Paris. This platform, dedicated to my research subject at first, has grown to include other trans-disciplinary artistic practices. I moved to Barcelona five years ago, where I pursue my research, advise, write and lecture. Over the years I've put together a (still growing!) book collection on the historical and ongoing relationship between the arts and economic phenomena.

Hello, I'm Stephanie Rothenberg. I am an artist and professor at SUNY Buffalo in New York. Most of my work focuses on themes of digital labor, specifically crowdfunding and crowdsourcing. Most recently I created a series of robotic gardens that examine the intersection of social media, philanthropy and finance. I'll be speaking about how these artworks and research have led to thinking about resilience within the context of finance and governance.

Hey ya'll!

Nice to meet most of you today.

Here is the mopey teenage angst video I mentioned in my talk that I listened to while doing chores. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_GkjymuQ9U

And many folks who talked today should read David Graeber's book, The Utopia of Rules (particularly you gamers).

xo,
Meredith

Hello all,
Very happy to meet many of you, wish I could have spoken to more of you!

An introduction after the fact...

My bio in the program was accurate: I am an artist working in a variety of media including installation, sculpture, video, and site specific action. My work draws out entanglements between natural, historical, cultural, and economic processes. Only thing that wasn't correct is that I am not currently based in NY, but rather in Maastricht, NL where I am a researcher/artist in residence at the Jan van Eyck Academie.

Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to continue the conversation or missed my presentation and were curious (I'd be happy to share them with you) just email me at m@matthewcwilson.com

Best wishes,
Matthew
