Do you like this?

“I’m shifting away from building objects and more toward trying to build society,” he said. “I want a society where the debts we owe are to each other. I’m obligated to you. If you get sick today, you should be able to get health care. That’s my obligation to you. That’s the real debt that I owe you. The debt I owe to Sallie Mae [which collects on student loans] is illegitimate. It’s a crime that it exists in the first place. No one should have to go into debt to get an education, to put food on the table, to have a basic shelter over their head.”

Gokey and his friends want to create a society in which debt functions differently. “That’s my art now,” he said. “I want to smash the system and build a new one.”

The managers have had their turn. Let’s see what the artists can do.

Gokey will give a presentation on “The Theology of Debt” at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 23, as part of the Theology on Tap series at The Camp House, located at 1427 Williams St.

Debt Aid and Education

I have been presenting an art installation on the nature of personal, institutional and world debt as it has effected my community, country, and my personal life. It always provokes conversation. I look forward to joining with you to help forgive unfair debt and educating ourselves and others on the complexity of this massive issue which touches on the many ways debt enslaves us all.
