#2DegreesFestival | Steve Lambert: Capitalism Works For Me! (True/False)


Multiple locations in East London

Free. 10am-4pm each day.

Starting a conversation about capitalism is like walking up to a stranger and asking, “Can I talk to you about Jesus?”

The word “capitalism” is a red flag. And for good reason because pretty soon someone will be talking at you about “The System” or aggressively confronting you about taxes. As a culture, we need the vision and boldness it takes to discuss the system itself.

Capitalism Works for Me! (True/False), a public installation by Steve Lambert, will travel around London to different iconic sites and commercial areas throughout the week of 2 Degrees Festival.

Engaging people in a deceptively simple true or false vote, the large LED-lit scoreboard sign will open up discussions about the way capitalism affects us all, inspiring critical thinking and new ideas.


  • Monday 1 June: Clerkenwell Green
  • Tuesday 2 June: Green Terrace, opposite Rosebery Hall
  • Wednesday 3 June: Old Spitalfields Market
  • Thursday 4 June: Chrisp Street Market
  • Friday 5 June: corner of Great Eastern Street and Old Street

The piece has toured over 20 cities in Europe and North America, including a spot in Times Square, NYC in 2013. This will be its London debut. Watch people’s responses from Times Square here.

Visit our 2 Degrees Festival Tumblr site for updates on where you’ll be able to find the sign.
