The Maximum Wage

The Maximum Wage

£3.50

“Inside the venue, it’s hectic, a little ramshackle, with a DIY, handmade aesthetic. It’s as far as you can get from the white cube art gallery experience. Although the art world may be driven by money, you feel a little uncouth if you actually ask how much something is. Here the mechanics of making and spending money are in the foreground and in your face. You’re being asked to think about wealth and value, and how these are not objective facts but constructed ideas.” – Anne Black & Katherine Dike, galleryELL

“Performance combining hectic game-show silliness, satirical bite and economic critique.” – David Collard, The TLS

 

“East London has become a prime example of the divide between the UK’s richest and poorest. It’s also where a group of artists are teaching people about income inequality.” – Helen Amass, The Times Educational Supplement
