Event: The Visual Culture of Debt with Nick Mirzoeff

  • EFA Project Space 2nd Floor 323 W 39th St New York, NY, 10018 United States

Neo-liberalism has visualized the debt society as a distinctly new arrangement of public space that Occupy has tried to counter. While debt is often said to be invisible, it is the means of naming, separating and ordering space in such a way that it comes to seem right. This teach-in will offer ways to analyze this visualization of debt, both in the present and by means of a comparison with the Civil Rights Movement. This event is a part of Occupy University's Art of Debt Series
