Project by Heather Griffin, Anna Maria Merkel and Evita Rigert in collaboration with “Perfom Istanbul”

At the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial “School of Schools” Heather Griffin, Anna Maria Merkel and Evita Rigert, presented as a collective at the exhibition space Arter under the name “The School of Consumption” a life radioplay. By collaborating with “Perfom Istanbul” – The first contemporary Platform for Performance Art in Turkey – we created a bilingual Radio play. The hybrid incarnation of capital and state, inspired by Mercury, the God of Trade and Midas, the King known for the golden touch, were fused into a hybride mythical character. M`n`M had a bilingual debate, in Turkish and English, about economic bubbles and the role of capital and state in the current economic model.
