Item 1: Developing content for the Market
Who do we want to involve in the Market of Values...
We start with an overview of where we think we are with the Market of Values Research, there is a discussion of generosity, where it slides into power and authority. And dependency. Potlatch and gifts are mentioned. Community formation, community formation around communal resources.
Internships in the arts - Precarious Workers Brigade. - the counter guide to internships
How do we want to work? What are our working practices to achieve this.
Do we want an auction? We could auction space or location? We want abhorant values to also be in circulation too. Dealers, collectors, an antiques roadshow type stall. Antagonism. Shifting values from one location to another, charging money to hire a space - and using the money to support (otherwise)free-labour.
Bingo - gambling addictions,addictions, lottery-like things, the value of labour, intellectual property v blood donation. Prestige. Please the Queen (or the God). Artists working with currencies. Bargains, everone likes a bargain!!!
The psychology of evaluation. Where is subjectivity in evaluative communities, can you 'have your own value'? Are all values communal?
The value of words in Google
9-17th June is the tentative date for the market. Is this a good time? Students will be busy. Fuck students.
Is this Market of Values Research a useful way to gather research and ideas?
Sissu mentioned investigating a history of The Market Market of Values Research too. (sorry I can't be there! - Amy)
