InDEBTed to Intervene

This highly original book looks at debt as an instrument for social control and investigates the connections between debt, design, art and communication. Aiming not just to advance scholarship, but to push ahead real change in the world, the book offers analytical insights and conceptual apparatuses, as well as practical tools and radical inspirations. A powerful analysis of a concept that has become ever more central to everyday society, InDEBTed to Intervene is essential reading for scholars and citizens alike.
