our neighbors at the Amsterdam-based Institute of Network Cultures and
Amateur Cities have published the Feminist Finance Zine. It's timely
title is ‘Radical Care: Embracing Feminist Finance.’ And it is now
available for free download (all details below). Spread the word!

Best wishes, Krystian (for the BG team)

Amateur Cities (https://amateurcities.com) and the Institute of Network
Cultures (https://networkcultures.org/) are proud to present a feminist
finance zine titled ‘Radical Care: Embracing Feminist Finance.’ It is a
cooperative future-thinking effort from the MoneyLab network, a
collective of artists, designers, researchers, geeks and activists
dedicated to the task of experimenting with more equitable, diverse, and
sustainable futures for finance and economy. The zine is a diverse
collection of voices organized in three types of contributions:
quickfire interviews (short reactions to big questions), double
interviews (conversational long reads), and artworks (projects
addressing discussed subjects visually).

Today we live in a world that is dominated by an economic system that is
global, competitive, and centred around a rational and egoistic vision
of the human (homo economicus). In this publication we asked ourselves
and over twenty contributors how we can embrace different values
focusing on locality, cooperation, and caring. Can an affective and
compassionate vision of the human get us closer to homo reciprocans or
cooperans? How can we break out of the crisis of imagination, and as
Lana Swartz and Martin Zeilinger propose, move towards the crisis of
implementation? How we can navigate the relations of exchange and trust
between humans and machines, but also, our relationship with the
environment. Can we finally not only recognize the climate catastrophe,
but also find ways to act against it, through an economic lens, mindful
of not reproducing patriarchal and colonial histories? As Denise
Thwaites notes, this work starts with careful and respectful listening
to voices that have long been silenced. In the words of Ruth Catlow and
Reijer Hendrikse: history is not over, we are just beginning!
