MELANIE GILLIGAN: CRISIS IN THE CREDIT SYSTEM

March 4, 2009 from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Bertelsmann Center, Weis Theater

Crisis in the Credit System, a recent video work by London-based artist Melanie Gilligan, synthesizes years of research on the current financial crisis. “A major investment bank runs a brainstorming and role-playing session for its employees, asking them to come up with strategies for coping with today’s dangerous financial climate. Role-playing their way into increasingly bizarre scenarios, they find themselves drawing disturbing conclusions about the deeper significance of the crisis and its effects beyond the world of finance.”
