  • Do you know how many times you can fly to Thailand before the end of the world? Or how much CO2 is used to make a theater performance?

    Karl Marx, 150 years ago, famously described the consequences of capitalism as: ‘All that is solid melts into air’. But even Marx could not predict that today, also the ice is melting.

    After Economic Theory for Dummies (2013) – which examines our current economic system, its background, development and function – Amund Sjølie Sveen is now back with MELTING, moving further into the climate problem, the last 30 years of aggressive, deregulated finance capitalism, and our possible common future:

    What happens when ice melts?
    What happens when economies melt?
    What happens when society, welfare, social relations, public art funding and human future melt?
