THE NEXT ECONOMY

TWO DAYS FULL OF PERFORMANCES, EXHIBITIONS, TESTIMONIES, SIMULATION GAME...ON THE OCCASION OF 10 YEARS OF FINANCIAL CRISIS.

We have a birthday to celebrate ! But not too early : in the autumn of 2018 it has been ten years since the financial crisis reached rock bottom. Even today, the exact origin of this crisis, from mortgages disguised as bonds to tax evasion, is hard to fathom while the crisis still has a drastic impact on our daily life. NEXT festival doesn't let this sad jubilee pass unnoticed. In a special progamme dedicated to the crisis, eight artists scrutinize our relation with money, tax evasion and charity. As the neoliberal carrousel seems to turn faster and faster, they claim the time and attention to come up with alternatives and throw more light on a crisis created by man. Thinking of the past ten years, these artists make room for reflection and concrete actions.
