MoneyLab#8 | Minting a Fair Society


MoneyLab explores the imaginaries of artists, researchers, activists and geeks in search of other possible economies, and urgently interrogates a different financial discourse. Can we use technology critically to support alternative values of cooperation and “commoning” in a world dominated by individualism and competition?

MoneyLab#8 zooms in on the effects of offshore finance and explores counter-experiments in the realms of housing, care work, and blockchain technology.

Initially planned as an IRL conference in Ljubljana, MoneyLab#8 was reformulated during the COVID-19 pandemic as a series of weekly streaming events that were held every Monday from 11 May to 29 June 2020. The MoneyLab#8 sessions’ archive is available on the website.

Speakers who participated at the MoneyLab#8 sessions:
Anuška Delić, Aude Launey, Brett Scott, Cassie Thornton, César Escudero Andaluz, Davor Mišković, Demystification Committee, Denis ‘Jaromil’ Roio, doma.city (Francesco Sebregondi, Maksym Rokmaniko), Domen Savić, Evgeny Morozov, Forms of ownership (Vienne Chan), Geert Lovink, Inte Gloerich, Janez Janša, Jaya Klara Brekke, Klemen Ploštajner, Lenart J.
