An Alternative Glossary of Exchange

An Alternative Glossary of Exchange

 

June 2014, an essay published in Ends Meet: Essays on Exchange.

 

This text is published in Ends Meet: Essays on Exchange, a collection of texts that respond to the theme of 'exchange' from a range of cultural, philosophical and political angles. The 18 essays in the book are accompanied by a series of guest voices: Neil Cummings, Susanne Kuechler, Ann Pettifor, Katrina Palmer and Nina Power.

 

Taking the prefix 'ex' as a starting point, my essay An Alternative Glossary of Exchange explores diverse materialisations of exchange, fro ex-voto paintings in Mexico to an X-shaped house on a Spanish hilltop.
