‘How to push through (new ideas), when no one needs them? How to concentrate? How to transform disappointment, desperation and insecurities into financial instruments?’ (Quote from homepage)
Artist Robertas Narkus introduces an investment scheme, which will turn your negative emotions into über-financial resources. The project is a distorted elevator pitch, one man spectacle, a lecture with stand-up, and lecture elements dealing with notions of attention economies, technology and investments. Networking with start-up communities in Liverpool, London and Warsaw, this project explores the landscape where entrepreneurial desires, hopes, failures, creativity, and ambitions meet. Using a blend of performance, video, and technology-based art, Narkus challenges audiences to question the accepted virtues and values of technology start-up culture.

This work realised within the framework of the European Media Art Platforms EMARE program at FACT with support of the Creative Europe Culture Programme of the European Union. Prospect Revenge has been commissioned by FACT and Culture Liverpool as part of The Future World of Work, Liverpool 2018, the 10th anniversary of the European Capital of Culture.
