Alter-Livelihoods: Experiments with infrastructures for community economies
Framed in Alastair Fuad-Luke’s curatorial agenda for the Biennale Alter— is a collection on Alter-Realities as a way to re-make worlds, re-animate ourselves and forge new relations while rejecting unsustainable hegemonies.
With the Vallagarina valley, in the Italian Alps, in the background Bianca Elzenbaumer and Fabio Franz, founding members of the Brave New Alps collective, reflect on modes of economic and social organization that value the work that is mostly sidelined by capitalist practices. Community projects with food or education are examples of how to create beneficial and inclusive dissent through design and traditional arts or crafts. From the Alps to the world.
