Private Deck charters the privatisation of 52 former UK state-owned firms.
Since the late 1970s there has been an increasing push towards “laissez-faire” capitalism and liberal economic policies, with privatisation mandates leaving a wide range of industries, from housing to nuclear research, exposed to market forces.
You can see Private Deck and the entirety of the project (including installations, a further publication and the 3D printer in action) at Light Eye Mind gallery from Friday 14th – Saturday 29th November. More info to follow soon.
Private Deck is part of Dead Cat Bounce* a social art project aimed at encouraging active economic awareness.
*In finance, a dead cat bounce is a small, temporary recovery in the price of a declining stock.
This project is supported through a MEAD Scholarship awarded by University of the Arts London.
