FinTech for the Precariat
Friday, Oct 29, 2021 at 2:00 pm
It has been projected that the 2020s will be the decade of the FinTech (Financial Technology) Revolution. Yet who will this revolution ultimately serve? On Halloween weekend, game designer and artist Ricardo Miranda Zuniga will invite museum guests to play FinTech for the Precariat, set in a fantastical New York City where the player hears the voices of people Miranda interviewed over the past year from across the financial spectrum, as well as ghoulish figures embodying such sins as Lust, Gluttony, Greed, and Envy. Taken together, these voices create a rich tapestry considering how our lives have been financialized. The game play will be preceded by a presentation from Miranda of his research, and will take place in the Museum’s Café area. Recommended for ages 14+ for nudity.
Free with Museum admission.
