Adams & Smith, auction catalogue
The year is 2034.
The era of free market capitalism and neo liberalism is well and truly over, and a new world order has taken its place.
In its wisdom, the Federal Council of Autonomous Zones has issued a directive abolishing all cash transactions.
To celebrate, Adams & Smith proudly offer 13 lots of genuine, once ubiquitous late capitalist artefacts taken from the Hollington & Kyprianou estate.
Each lot reveals a curious aspect of that bygone age, shedding light on the odd and dangerously contradictory practices of the time. With provenance certified by Tamasin Cave of SpinWatch, each lot unearths the unsavoury history connecting government, big business and the lobbying industry.
With this last ever auction, Adams & Smith are pleased to offer you a final opportunity to bring the trappings of late-Capitalism back into your life.
