StrikeDebtBayArea peeps will be talking about their projects at the Occupy SF Forum on April 1st.
Cassie Thorton, of one SDBA’s founding members,
will present three years of research and art making about debt
and its relationship to contemporary notions of work, behavior,
emotions and the unconscious. In this talk Cassie will explore the
nature of debt as a tulpa, which, in Tibetan mysticism, is a being or
object created out of a shared willpower, attention, focus, and
ritual. If enough people think it, believe it, and have fear of it,
the tulpa manifests as a powerful physical thing. How do we shift the
collective idea of debt so that it doesn’t create fear and shame?
Others will join her to talk about other SDBA projects, foreclosure and its
relationship to debt, the Rolling Jubilee, etc.
Time will be allotted for Q&A and open discussion.
Monday April 1st 6 – 9 pm.
2017 Mission Street, 2nd Floor (push: 200 to be buzzed in), near Mission/16th Street BART
