Think Space has now launched the second competition in its MONEY cycle: Culture & Society, to be jurored by Pedro Gadanho, the Curator of Contemporary Architecture at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.
This competition is dealing with omnipresent questions that occupy individuals active in various cultural fields experiencing constraints of the system in which money is the essential means and aim. This is the second competition of the Think Space MONEY Cycle, curated by Ethel Baraona Pohl & Cesar Reyes Najera.
In the past years, we have witnessed the emergence of experimental currencies such as the bitcoin, as well as new forms of economical exchange and trade, such as crowdfunding, social money, micropayments, or time banks, all of them based on the trust and support of a given network. Coming from the fields of design and urban transformation, can these currency experiments and moneyless service exchanges be harnessed as catalysts for change? Can they be envisaged as an integral part of new forms of practice?”
