Berlin Art Week: Conversation between artist Christopher Kulendran Thomas and economist Moritz Schularick.

The technological acceleration of the fourth industrial revolution is not only transforming capitalism but also opening up new possibilities for how housing could be organized. Artist Christopher Kulendran Thomas and economist Moritz Schularick consider whether real estate markets—cornerstones of the global economic and financial system—could be disrupted by new models that privilege flexible access over private ownership. They ask the question: Could capitalism be driving itself out of business?
