Slime Currency & Bohemian Conversationalists: Berlin Collective Comes to NYC
Friday night’s event “Faster, Capitalism! Kill Kill!” was a parody of how we (western capitalist democracies) have let a desire for material goods and wealth fuel our society and value system. ZIA have tried to replicate this idea in a microcosm, as explained in their press release: “Join the Slime Economy: Swap your greenbacks for a pot of Slime currency and start speculating! Waste it on drinks at the bar or try to make a slimy fortune at the casino. But watch out: when the Federal Slime Reserve floods the market with vast quantities of freshly minted slime, the bubble will certainly burst.” Some of the anti-establishment events also included a PowerPoint karaoke contest and slide show.
