Plan for a Speculation
Plan for a Speculation (2010)
The Nordenskiöld Model: Act 1 was an exhibition produced by Konsthall C, Stockholm in 2010. The audience was invited to a series of open rehearsals taking place at IFL, an executive education institute at the Stockholm School of Economics.
The Nordenskiöld Model departs from a historical figure, August Nordenskiöld, in whom Swedish colonial history, the development of state financial apparatus and utopian mysticism intersect. Against this backdrop, a set of theatrical stagings confront the contemporary development of mathematical models of speculation and the financial economy’s formation of the market.
Plan for a Speculation is a reader published on the occasion of the exhibition The Nordenskiöld Model: Act 1, Konsthall C, 2010. OUT OF PRINT.
