Panel discussion //

With: Pinar Yoldas en Monika Bielskyte
Curated by: Natalie D Kane and Tobias Revell

Welcome to Conditional Values: an online panel in a spreadsheet. The world’s leading economic powers struggle with an ecological crisis, a global pandemic and social and racial inequality. In reaction to this situation, in recent years we saw several alternative economic models, including: the Universal Basic Income, the Occupy movement, the Green New Deal and micro-economies in towns and cities. Which other alternatives might emerge? How can we reconcile economy and ecology? What role can art and technology play in this? Which tools and strategies do we need to develop to better understand and reorient human and economic processes?

This programme is for anyone who finds it easier to imagine the end of the world than a panel in a spreadsheet. During Conditional Values, a spreadsheet is the starting point for two unorthodox presentations on alternative economic models for a sustainable future. After the presentations by Pinar Yoldas and Monika Bielskyte, you are invited to further develop and contribute to the ideas in a collective online ‘spreadsheet jam session’.
