Money and trade considered

Cathleen Schuster and Marcel Dickhage

In a screening and discussion we’ll show “Money and trade considered”. The film is in the form of a loop that depicts a (re)enactment of a detail in the history of Finance. It was made during our time at the JVE 2013/14, with actors and self-built stage elements made of wood and printed paper. Based on the person and writings by John Law and on historical representations of one of the earliest speculation bubbles, some sequences of the Mississippi Bubble were (re)enacted and filmed, while keeping them attached to current affairs.
