#Transacting: A market of values

#TransActing: A Market of Values
Saturday, 11th July 2015, 12 - 5pm, Chelsea College of Arts

This bustling pop-up market featured artists, designers, economists, civil-society groups, academics, ecologists, activists and others who creatively explore existing structures of evaluation and actively produce new ones.

Organised by Critical Practice, #TransActing took place on the historic Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground, located between Tate Britain and Chelsea College of Arts. The Market showcased a skillshare, a peoples bureau, organ donation, an economy of promises, commoners, a fablab, a bring your own BBQ, virtuous communities, a speakers’ corner - even a kiosk buying tears. Multiple currencies were circulating during the market day, not all of them monetary.

For #TransActing public works developed a series of bespoke stalls, designed to adapt to the market needs following the open source Autoprogettazione building system developed by italian designer Enzo Mari.  
The stalls were built collaboratively over a construction week prior the market day by Critical Practice, public works and other contributors.

These stands were interspersed with spaces of assembly and exchange - a speakers’ corner, a social cinema. 

Critical Practice is: Metod Blejec, Marsha Bradfield, Cinzia Cremona, Neil Cummings, Neil Farnan, Angela Hodgson-Teal, Kar- em Ibrahim, Catherine Long, Amy McDon- nell, Claire Mokrauer-Madden, Eva Sajovic, Kuba Szreder, Sissu Tarka and many more besides.

#TransActing was organised by Critical Practice and designed in collaboration with public works. It was part of Camberwell, Chelsea & Wimbledon (CCW) Graduate School’s public programme.
