Capitalism Works for Me! (True/False)

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 appear in locations across Birmingham City Centre throughout Fierce 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.
