NOW I GOTTA REASON, Jerwood Space
Myself and Ruth Beale are making new work based on our project with the Working Class Movement Library as part of NOW I GOTTA REASON, Jerwood Space, 171 Union Street, 7 November - 9 December 2012.
Other participants in the show include: Marcus Coates, Michael Davis, Fernando Garcia-Dory, Steve Ounanian, An Endless Supply, Kathrin Böhm and Grizedale Arts
We are running a series of study groups called - Money Money Money every Saturday from 11am-12:30.
The study groups aim to unpick the mystery of money for the individual negotiating day-to-day life in neoliberal capitalism. Looking at money from its beginnings and history, to getting to grips with the contemporary finance industry, to varied attempts at alternative economies. Participatory discussions will be initiated by Amy Feneck and Ruth Beale, using books loaned by the Working Class Movement Library in Salford and other research material.
We are also running a weekly Skill Swap Bazaar every Wednesday, 2–2.30pm in the gallery space.
We are also participating in The Now I Gotta Reason Library - We are looking for donations of useful books and films on themes of Work, Money and Ways of Living. Bring them to the Jerwood Space now and at the end of the show Crisis in Bermondsey will have the Now I Gotta Reason library.
Here is a review of the exhibition by Ruth Hogan for thisistomorrow:
