As part of the Encura #1, Marzia Matarese has been making terrific podcasts with the artists participating in The Conversation, occurring this Wednesday 9 December at 8pm. Follow this link to hear more about the processes and preoccupations of Hangar’s artists-in-residence.
The most recent podcast focuses on Romanian artist Ciprian Homorodean’s book “Take the Book, Take the Money, Run”. This unique, hand-illustrated work proposes an alternative approach for those suffering from the recent finical crisis: Don’t Shop. Steal.
While “Take the Book…” is certainly a useful introductory guide to the methods behind all sorts of theft (the image above details how to remove a mark’s watch) it also provides some useful insights into ways of avoiding detection in today’s overly-surveilled public sphere – a perfect addition to The Conversation.
