Gdańsk 5 — 11 August 2013
The Virtual Economic Zone is the zone of economic imagination – a live appendix of Alternativa at St. Dominic’s Fair. the Fair itself is an annual festival of street vendors, an attraction which drives hundreds of tourists to downtown Gdańsk. VEZ finds its location in the midst of this largest city fair in the Baltic region, transforming it from the inside in accordance with the principles of virtual economy. We are not going to sell leather goods and accessories, old clocks, dauby seascapes, and amber goods. In our Kiosk, a group of Polish and international artists will indulge in the experiments with various forms of non-commercial exchange, an imaginary economy, iffy trade, and topsy-turvy calculations. Contrary to special economic zones, VEZ does not follow the sanctified precepts of maximizing profits and (seemingly) rational calculation. VEZ is a temporary centre of an artistic game with the revelations of economic guidelines, trespassing the limits of economic imagination.
