Museum of Debt

How we took ‘Thank You’ and turned it into ‘Screw You’.


The Museum of Debt is currently in the planning phase with the aim of having a pop-up museum installation soon.

It is now over a decade since the publication of David Graeber’s monumental historical and anthropological analysis of debt (Debt. The First 5000 years).

The pop up exhibition will involve newly commissioned art works, and exhibits based on Graeber’s book giving people a chance to examine some of the key documents from Babylon to Marshalsea that illustrate what debt is and how it has evolved. It will aim to make clear how we have taken a venerable cornerstone of community and turned it toxic.

We are raising funds for the initial awareness raising and network building activities through GoFundMe.
