  • About the Talk

    Together with BANK, RAM presents Vive Le Capital, an evening where art meets global commerce that explores, celebrates, and critiques the omnipresent power of global finance through the perspectives from artists and others that examine the momentous and intimate experiences with multi-national capitalism. Creative practices will be considered as impressed in the world of global capital and finance, rather than reducing them to vapid gestures of political correctness or over-simplifying dichotomies of morality. Christoph Draeger will present Disaster Capitalism, a live performative lecture, which discusses the legacy and intimate ties between global capitalism, disaster, and cultural production; with a focus on this dynamic artist’ s own projects. Wang Xin will lead a discussion about the subject and paradoxes of capitalism and labor in the contemporary arts.
