This session builds from the opening week to explore the abstract worlds of finance and monetary systems. We continue to explore the accumulation of power and wealth through these systems, and see how the major players are related, or even the same. We look at “hegemonic cultural processes”, or the ways in which corporate influence extends into building cultural narratives around what is “in your best interest” and what is “for the good of mankind”. We ask questions about how much of our beliefs are constructed, for whose benefit, so that we may free ourselves from believing that the answers to the world’s crises can be found in something money can buy. In this session, we begin to see how technology and digitisation are tools to further entrench the powers that be.
