Aesthetics of Money and Finance, July 14

Panel Discussion: Aesthetics of Money and Finance: contemporary art reflects on offshore finance

As part of the Show Me the Money exhibition which will tour Manchester’s People’s History Museum throughout July, Manchester Business School will exhibit the Swedish contemporary artist duo Goldin+Senneby’s work Headless. The Headless exhibition will be opened by Peter Knight, co-curator of the Show Me the Money exhibition, and a panel discussion on aesthetics of money and finance and the Goldin+Senneby’s ghost-written novel Headless will follow. Goldin+Senneby’s work Headless is heavily influenced by the French philosopher and writer George Bataille’s work on sovereignty, sexuality and economy. The panellists will discuss the tradition of artistic and literary work commenting on financial crises, political economy and capitalism; anthropology of money; and glamour of high finance.
