Katie Higgins, Ruth Beale, Amy Feneck, Caroline Knowles


This discussion with artists Ruth Beale and Amy Feneck (The Alternative School of Economics) and Professor Caroline Knowles (Goldsmiths, University of London) will explore the potential of art and creative methods for studying elites. The discussion, which includes a short film screening, brings together three experts to discuss: the innovative use of creative methods in studying the rich; the potential of art to generate public engagement on wealth inequality; and what might be productive conversations and collaborations between the academic and creative sectors in researching the rich.
