IMAGINE: UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME | TALK
WEDNESDAY, 27 SEPTEMBER
FROM 7PM

What do possible foundations for a future society look like? The universal basic income has become a viable option. With increasingly automated production processes, this utopia suddenly seems realisable. When the working hours are reduced, when work is not a means to mere survival, we can devote our time to global problems. A universal basic income could not only mean freedom from the constraint of breadwinning, but also the freedom to achieve individual and social goals.

As a think tank of artists, designers, and young researchers we’d like to start a discussion on the topic. Following an invitation by the New York based start up Print All Over Me, we commissioned 15 artists to do a fashion edition.

To launch the collection, we invite four theorists to talk about the basic income. To discuss the topic, there are essays by Nick Srnicek and Viola Nordsieck, which are available on the website Imagine: Universal Basic Income.
