Such Great Heists 

Wednesday, Oct 17 2012

Everyone has fantasized about having more money, especially in these trying economic times. But very few fantasize about acquiring said money through such extreme measures as robbing a bank. Well, the Center for Tactical Magic not only wants you to imagine it, but it might also reward you $1,000 for your efforts in its Bank Heist Contest, which is part of Making a Scene, a new group artists’ residency at Southern Exposure. The public is invited to imagine the possibility of a successful bank heist and submit a proposal, to be judged by a jury of experts and professionals on concept, presentation, feasibility, and creativity. To get you inspired, the group is leading participants in today’s Bank Heist Contest Proposal Workshop on the “taxonomy of bank heists,” as well as facts and myths about robberies gone by (and gone awry). The contest is de-signed as a participatory cultural endeavor to address and respond to heightened antagonism toward the big banking es-tablishments; to win, applicants must plan out a heist, draw it up, and describe it in excruciating detail. Best of all, there is no chance of jail time.
