Biblically Responsible Investing is a video installation and a mixed media sculpture, showing the relevance when religion enters the daily practice of global financing.
Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI) is a Christian investment approach that aligns with the investor’s faith and biblical beliefs. Christian investors exclude companies from their investment portfolios that are involved in affairs such as abortion, contraception, and the LGBTQ community. Indirectly God is the portfolio manager.
In an extensive research open-source databases and screening tools were discovered to scan for so-called ‘sin stocks’. In these databases, Christian portfolio managers are constantly keeping track of companies’ violations and update reports with detailed descriptions of infringements. The data of this research is reflected in a video installation and mixed media sculpture.
