Dare we suggest that Market Project’s activities and discussions may have been an influence on the subject matter of Jasper Joffe’s next show, Economics?
“Chateau Joffe presents a series of paintings about economics: offices, Chinese and US factories, slaves, labour, bankers, mortgages and derivatives. All the work originates from the world image bank of Flickr. Joffe constructs a visual vocabulary of the abstract terms which are used in discussing the economy. An email discussion between artists, collectors, and economists will be published to mark the opening of Economics.”
The “privatised view” is on the 9th August in Shoreditch, details from Joffe.
