Kennard, Peter, 2009, Art or design object, Café of Equivalent$
|Abstract or Description:||
Taking the form of a soup kiosk, Café of Equivalent$ was a public art work set up during lunch hour in Leadenhall Market in the heart of London’s financial district. Playing with the fabrication of value in the global capitalist financial system, Kennard and his sometime collaborator, Cat Picton Phillipps, working as kennardphillipps, engaged city workers with some simple ‘truth derivatives’, equating their salaried/bonus income with the cost of lunch for a worker in the producing countries, i.e. Mozambique, Brazil, Indonesia, Bangladesh.
