Kate Rich

Kate Rich is a trade artist and feral economist.

Kate Rich is a trade artist and feral economist, born in Australia and living in Bristol UK. She is co-founder of the Bureau of Inverse Technology (BIT), an international agency producing an array of critical information products including economic and ecologic indices, event-triggered webcam networks and animal operated emergency broadcast devices. The Bureau's work has been exhibited in academic, scientific and museum contexts. Since 2003 she has run Feral Trade, a long-range economic experiment and underground freight network, utilising the spare carrying capacity of the art world for the transportation of other goods, specifically groceries. Kate is volunteer finance manager at Bristol's artist-run Cube Microplex, system administrator for the Irational.org art-server collective and a founding member of the European Sail Cargo Alliance. Her ongoing preoccupation is to move deeper into the infrastructure of trade, administration, organisation and economy in the cultural realm. She is currently testing out curriculum for the Feral MBA, a radically different kind of business school where artists, business operators and other researchers would gather to experiment with new shapes for business and enterprise for a fundamentally reimagined economy.
