How would we organise our lives if we didn’t have to earn a living? Indeed, what would we do if our livelihood was secured? In 2021, the Wiener Festwochen will once again open with a discursive debate; artist and activist Anna Rispoli is elaborating a choral speech on unconditional basic income. It is an appeal to reflect on distributive justice, precarity and sustainability. Based on interviews with Viennese citizens and against the backdrop of a work environment thrown even more out of sync by a virus, Income. The unconditional speech sees our present-day utopia as tomorrow’s realities. How would unconditional basic income redesign our lives, our towns and cities, society, and the world as a whole? Rispoli’s interventionist art practices aim to change the public space and are founded on the principle of affective mutual contamination. When words uttered by others pass through our own mouths, a form of non-monetary exchange is able to occur. An economy like we have never seen before!
