Plus respondents including Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art: Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy Many of questions addressed in the session are entangled in an economic stratum that is defined by the question of money and that works as a pressure point for productivity and efficiency. Bearing this in mind, we looked at the art economy from the perspective of “diverse economies” that articulates all forms of transaction and diverse value at stake other than monetary value. Four case studies of four different types of art institutional economies were presented, lending themselves to collective consultancy towards more equal, sustainable, and movement-orientated practice. This session was facilitated by researcher-curator Kuba Szreder and artist Kathrin Böhm, who together established the Centre for Plausible Economies in 2018.
