Headless exhibition launched at MBS East


As part of the Show Me the Money exhibition at Manchester’s People’s History Museum, Manchester Business School is exhibiting the Swedish contemporary artist duo Goldin+Senneby’s work Headless. The exhibition, part of MBS’ 50th anniversary celebrations, was opened by Peter Knight, co-curator of the Show Me the Money exhibition, and Ismail Erturk, senior lecturer in banking at MBS led a panel discussion on the aesthetics of money and finance and the Goldin+Senneby’s ghost-written novel Headless.

Goldin+Senneby’s work Headless is heavily influenced by the French philosopher and writer George Bataille’s work on sovereignty, sexuality and economy.

The panel:
Ismail Ertürk, Senior Lecturer, Banking, Manchester Business School
Peter Folkman, Honorary Professor, Manchester Business School
Ed Granter, Lecturer, Organisation and Society, Manchester Business School
Liz McFall, Head of Sociology, Open University
Nikolai Ssorin-Chaikov, Lecturer, Social Anthropology, University of Cambridge

The Headless installation will be in Manchester Business School East until 2016.
