Burning Ice #4
The economy is what this Burning Ice is all about. Our blind faith in the holy trinity ‘growth-price-money’ is challenged by the current financial and ecological crisis. From January 17-23 we will listen to artists, economists and philosophers who criticise this blind faith and suggest new values. They link economic growth with its impact on the environment, talk about the illusion of the correct market price and discuss different roles that money could play. Burning Ice #4 wants to position itself between the theoretical, practical and poetic views of economics. This tri-pod is given concrete form in three locations: the KBC auditorium, the Changing Tents and the Kaaitheater.
