Under the direction of teacher-researcher Robert Krause, holder of the AMSE/Iméra Chair: A World in Crisis, 2022-23.
Roundtable #1: Universal Basic Income: Perspectives from the History of Ideas and Economics.
On May 9th, at Iméra from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
The unconditional basic income, as currently being discussed in several European and world countries, and even being tested in pilot programs, is “unprecedented” and a “very recent political claim.” But “it is not without history” (Kovce / Priddat 2020). This history remains to be written. Both economics and the history of ideas offer perspectives that deserve to be in dialogue.

Roundtable #2: Between Art and Politics: Universal Basic Income for Artists?
On May 10th, at FRAC-SUD – Cité de l’art contemporain, from 2:30 pm to 6:30 pm.
While many artists were already living at the minimum subsistence level before the Covid pandemic and the energy crisis, their situation has worsened even more today. In this context, a thorough debate on a basic income claimed for all artists is even more important.
