Capitalism Works For Me! (True/False) (2013)

Steve Lambert describes us as doing “what public institutions should be doing” by creating spaces where “essential discussion can happen that wouldn’t happen elsewhere – not in workplaces, government offices or over dinner”.

Lambert’s piece for Turning FACT Inside Out encourages debate and discussion and reiterates our building as a safe space for risky conversations. Put in the form of a massive, carnival-like spectacle, bright dancing lights lead us into difficult intellectual territory where the foundations of our everyday lives are called into question.

This piece has travelled the world, accumulating video, photo, and written documentation illustrating how participants react to the provocative statement and this is accessible both online and in the atrium next to the artwork. Experiencing others’ thoughts about the topic allows us to discover international perspectives that we can identify with or be challenged by.
