Description:

Join us in this adventure by reserving tickets for all three episodes. This project is the first North American presentation of work by Paris-based Argentinian artist Liv Schulman, winner of the 20th edition of Fondation d’entreprise Ricard Prize (2018). The New Inflation is an ambitious live performance that layers several narrative systems. Enlisting a cast of six local actors, a set of uniforms, staged sculptures, lecturing, and a funny-depressing form of stand-up comedy, Schulman explores inflation as a mythology that relies on the manufacturing of crisis as a resource, of error as opportunity, and of devaluation as a means of extraction. Inflation creates new forms of relationships, new interior designs, new wallpapers, new entanglements in language, and new fantasies as well as new markets. The myth of inflation becomes a link between one and the universe. Free and open to all but space is limited. RSVP required at bemiscenter.org/thenewinflation.
