Following from the responses to FUTURES AND OPTIONS in March 2012, ABSORBING SURPLUS is the second series of lectures within the context of the ongoing project, “One day, everything will be free…”. This time, an expert on banking, an artist, and an anthropologist have been invited to elaborate, respectively, on the extents of financialization, attempts at representing capital, and the political economy of scarcity.
On the first evening of the program, there will be three short presentations in the Walk-in Cinema at SALT Beyoğlu. On the following evening, İsmail Ertürk will lead an in-depth seminar on the topics from his presentation in the workshop space at SALT Galata.
