Exchange Cafe runs on an alternative currency that is validated by the requests of the people who use it.
Open until June 30th at MoMA's Cullman Research Building, Exchange Cafe features dairy from activist organizers Milk Not Jails, tea from anarchist network Feral Trade Courier, and honey from population control researchers at BeeSpace. An archive of artworks based on reciprocity and exchange, from barter to unconventional encounters, makes legible contemporary practices in art and activism. The waitstaff are activists, artists, and educators with direct experience with cooperative, alternative, and non-market economies.
