Transit #1: The Economy Experience
Fri 18 September 2015
The Economy Experience
Transit is a nomadic programme of artists’ film, screened from the back of a van. For its inaugural installment, the van presents moving image works by Caroline Campbell, Common Culture, Dennis & Debbie Club, Jean-Baptiste Maitre and Will Kendrick which negotiate the adventure of consumption today, in the era of the experience economy.
Imitating and upending the language and postures of selling, "The Economy Experience" celebrates a mythology of honest commerce and its unsung heroes. This installment is an elegy for late capitalism and its obsession with surface: viewer becomes consumer; art becomes product; artist becomes salesman.
