SVA – Social Venture Analyses (1-7)

Deluxe precariat El Eden

Meanwhile, trekking from one precariat to another has become a longtime common practice for us. The fact that short-termed possibility spaces open up and projects develop without long lead time also reveals current positions – direct statements with less voluntary self-control. Welcome to El Eden!

SVAAMSKSVF… (dangerous abbreviations)

One would assume a society sets down its own rules. And the means to find those rules should be politics. At present, though, fact is that politics is restructuring itself to an instrument of economy.
As a consequence, the entirety of requirements for a thriving communal life is subjected to simple market mechanisms. The effects are fatal: Anything not able to contribute to further economic growth because of different goals is considered obsolete and can therefore be axed. Redundant (national) wealth, revoked from real economy, becomes play money on virtual markets.
Thus, politics does not only coolly expropriate its Souvereign, but also hands back social responsibility to him. By the catchphrase “self responsibility”, the withdrawal of politics from its duties to society is being justified.
Therefore, RHIZOM project “SVA – Social Venture Analysis” sets itself to trace the effects and to give back the knowledge gained via means of art.
