For the symposium Vermeir & Heiremans invited a number of speakers working in the fields of financial geography, art and law. The texts assembled in this publication focus on the relationship between art and finance, the contemporary role of public museums and collections, and the influence of financialisation on urban processes and daily life. The ultimate question the symposium wished to address is whether finance can be a useful tool to create a more equitable society.


Essay contributions by Annelore Hofman, Victoria Ivanova, Caroline Knowles, Luke Mason, Louis Moreno, Emily Rosamond, and an epilogue by Andrea Phillips. The publication can be ordered via info@jubilee-art.org. Price: 10 euro (postal costs excluded)
