ROBIN HOOD MINOR ASSET MANAGEMENT (Based in Helsinki)
ROBIN HOOD, 2013
There is no outside of global financial capitalism so we have to find ways to work within it. Robin Hood – a cooperative fusing economy, art and activism works towards new forms of economy and organisation. For the Helsinki Media Facades Festival 2013, Robin Hood will create an interactive campaign including a 3-day workshop and an urban installation.
Robin Hood is an investment bank of the precariat. Its business is minor asset management. The operation of Robin Hood is based on the detailed analysis and understanding of the functioning of financial market, biopolitical economy, semiocapital and its relationship with the problem of organization. The co-operative think that the changed nature of organizational problematic has not been understood really yet at all. Nor its relation to our precarious states of mind. They are trying to understand it, as well as proposing a new form of collectivity.
