EXPERIENCE ECONOMIES 2: CLASS WARFARE
Featuring Caitlin Berrigan’s work-in-progress Spectrum of Inevitable Violence, the evening included both a vastly complex sociological survey for the audience and a cathartic food fight in which participants’ actions were determined in part by their socio-economic status. ExEc2 was held at Meme Gallery in Cambridge, where the detritus of the event was left on display after-the-fact.

Hegemonies of the new elite, Bobos, creative class, bourgeois, working class, middle class—all these terms fly in America with the velocity of rotten tomatoes. At the Experience Economies event, the social currency, creative capital, economic status, upward mobility and toxic assets of participants will be analyzed and instigate a class confrontation. Food will be the ammunition of this class war—dress appropriately, or do your best to dodge the rage!
