RESEARCH METHODS FOR FINDING SOFT SPOTS IN A HARD FINANCIAL LANDSCAPE

Cassie Thornton (Feminist Economics Department)

Cassie Thornton is an artist and a feminist economist. Her art/work uses feminist economics and its potential applications for locating non-monetary forms of value and organizing new forms of collective survival within and after this crisis. In this workshop she will present four research methods that she has developed from within her art practice to reveal the impacts of debt and security on communities around the world including hedge fund managers, real estate agents, teachers, artists and activists. Some of her undomesticated but rigorous social research methods include the the visualization of debt as an object or space, collective institutional dreaming, alternative credit reporting interviews and using surveys to explore shameful or encrypted experiences and feelings about health, money, scarcity and fear. Each project reveals the immeasurable and traumatic impact capitalism and colonialism has had on human imagination and sociality, and the infinite resilience and spontaneity that exists anyway.
