Description

This conversation took place on April 4, 2020. A world renowned artist, Brian Eno, and the former Greek finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, are raising questions about the social and cultural consequences of the corona pandemic. Will we be able to design the future of a new civilization or will politicians and corporations hold on to the extraordinary powers they now have taken.
Brian Eno is an English musician, record producer, visual artist, best known for his pioneering work in ambient music and contributions to rock, pop, and electronics. He is also a member of the British Labour Party and campaigned door to door for Jeremy Corbyn.

Yanis Varoufakis was an internationally known economist and academic when he was elected to the Greek parliament as a member of the Syriza party. He served as Minister of Finance in 2015. And resigned when Syriza broke its promise to re-negotiate Greece's debt and curtail the austerity measures which had led to the longest recession in post-war history.

In February 2016, Varoufakis co-founded the Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25) joined by notables such as Noam Chomsky and Brian Eno. To this day DiEM25 fights to democratize the European Union and stop the rise of fascism in some EU member states.

Brian Eno and Yanis Varoufakis were sheltering in place in their homes in England and Greece. They spoke via a scratchy internet connection on DiEMTV - that’s archived on YouTube. They call DiEMTV “our media playground, away from the mass media dictatorship. This is our stage, your home, ours news stand.”

Yanis Varoufakis is hosting.
