The IIPPE annual conference 2021 (International Initiative for Promoting Political Economy) with Nathaniel Sullivan on the Criminal Type and Peter A.G. van Bergeijk on Broken Links.
The Criminal Type by Nathaniel Sullivan
The Criminal Type (After Galton) is a multimedia lecture performance that explores a centuries old
cognitive bias: that a person's character and potential can be established through appearance alone.
From crackpot phrenologists, and Victorian polymath Francis Galton’s composite profiles of criminals
to the algorithmic profiling of Silicon Valley tech startups and my own artist project profiling the CEOs
of the big banks, this impulse persists. What can a face tell us that we aren’t already looking for?
Broken Links by Peter A.G. van Bergeijk
Just before the second lockdown, I arranged an exhibition with artistic perspectives on the pandemic
at the Institute of Social Studies in The Hague, The Netherlands. Invitations, price list, visiting plan,
guest book, art works, description tags and a catalogue. The perfectly organized exhibition, Broken
Links is an ‘installation’: an exhibition without visitors. You will, however, be able to visit Broken Links
(and my printing studio) with this short video. In addition to my professional work as a lithographer,
the video and my presentation relate to my economic hobby, in particular Pandemic Economics
(Edward Elgar, 2021). Free first chapter here:
