Giving and Taking - Antidotes to a Culture of Greed
Publisher Nai010 Publishers
'Giving and Taking' is a collective effort to establish the significance of the so-called non-pecuniary value of art and society. Markets and money are very crude measures when it comes to establishing the value of art and feelings. What exactly is being valued in the financial approach to culture, and what is being overlooked? This book explores the layer of solidarity that exists between those participants in our world economy that nobody seems to address anymore, because we are blinded by the strict, formal axiomatics of money. With contributions by Peter Sloterdijk, Marcel Hénaff, Zygmunt Bauman, Joris Luyendijk, and many others.
