Traversing and Translating High Finance

Peluso, Daniela M. (2015) Traversing and Translating High Finance. Review of: Mapping the frontiers of high finance: Art, anthropology & the material culture of markets by UNSPECIFIED. Anthropology Today, 31 (3). p. 21. ISSN 0268-540X. (doi:10.1111/1467-8322.12180) (KAR id:60711)


Symposium/workshop held on 25 April 2015 at the Royal Anthropological Institute.

This workshop, held at the Royal Anthropological Institute, went beyond charting the frontiers of corporate investments by forming bridges between disparate terrains that might otherwise seem unconnected, and proposing new methodologies for exploring and communicating such links. Anthropologists, artists, accountants, hacktivists, economists, journalists, former brokers and educators traced their ideas and methods as they imaginatively and rigorously made links geared toward making visible the frequently invisible workings of finance. Presentations informed by conceptual and performative art and exhibits focused on themes of financial secrecy and transparency that arose throughout the workshop, entreating participants to focus on current global predicaments such as the economic crisis – not solely on its effects, but also importantly, its causes.
