Fellowship of Citizens by Saemundur Thor Helgason






Fellowship of Citizens is London-based artist Saemundur Thor Helgasons first solo exhibition in London. The exhibition will formally launch the interest group Flag Borgara (or in English Fellowship of Citizens) founded by Saemundur Thor Helgason in Reykjavik in October 2017, which aims to lobby for basic income in Iceland through apolitical means.

Part of arebytes 2018 programme Islands, the interest group seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of a financing scheme which operates as an economic island, a microcosmic financial system, lobbying for basic income in Iceland. The work operates on a national scale due to legal restrictions, but financially supports BIEN (Basic Income Earth Network), an international organisation that advocates for basic income worldwide.
