Debtfair Proposal at Momenta Art



Debtfair is Occupy Museum’s ongoing campaign and series of proposals to reveal the hidden debt in the art market. The extractive mechanisms of interest-bearing loans from education or credit cards increasingly keep artists poor, even as the overall wealth in the art market increases. A community of artists are making their debt struggles visible at, and for Momenta Art, Occupy Museums proposes physical interventions to display bundles of indebted art in galleries and art fairs.

Culture is Collaborative, the Art Market is Extractive.
