Does a society whose citizens have access to an Unconditional Basic Income exhibit
more direct democratic participation? Could Joseph Beuys’s art and work concept
point in the direction of the need for a basic income? What do we hope to gain from
the “Expedition Basic Income” project when trying to implement subsidized basic
income experiments in cities and communities via direct democracy?
