This course explores what money really is. It expands our everyday perceptions of coins and notes by looking at the ways in which artists, writers and philosophers have revealed the social and political assumptions that money relies upon. The first class will introduce you to money’s contested histories, exploring how histories of barter have been placed against histories of debt and what this means for how money functions in contemporary economies. The second class will introduce you to the ways in which artists and writers have imagined alternative forms of money, exploring examples from counterfeiting to the gift economy. The final class explores what money means in our contemporary moment: analysing the social relations, and problems, that digital money brings. -
