More about 
Société du Risque 
With Enrico Gaido

collusion at VUG_ Lisbon, 2019

The theme on which Gaido and Costa made their work was inspired on La société du risque, from the title of the French translation of the book Risikogesellschaft by Ulrich Beck from 1986.
The society of risk is first of all characterized by a lack: the impossibility of attributing threat situations
to causes external to society. The risks no longer come from the outside, but are built by society itself
and, as argued by Beck, contemporary society has moved from a principle of distribution of wealth to
one of distribution of risks. The title for this first collusion was borrowed from Beck's book because it
perfectly lends itself to identifying a specific concept such as 'risk', but leaving ample freedom to
investigate other specificities that, while remaining linked to the term and its concept, can be more
personally relevant and addressed with different methodologies and approaches.
The concept of risk has a more tenuous and less certain value than that of "danger", because it is an
eventuality connected to circumstances that are more or less predictable.

There is the risk of slipping, but you have to take the risk, it is a calculated risk, taken into account, and sometimes you have to put your reputation at risk even at the risk of breaking your neck bone, other times, though, you have to face the risk of dismissal or worse, the risk of death because there is still the nuclear risk with the possibility of exposure to radiation, and there is still a high statistical incidence of particular pathological events, as well as of economic damages, and it is better trying to foresee the risks of a transaction, an initiative or a contract, but there may be a clause or a notice with which the company declines all responsibility for any damage suffered by the goods, because in economics, in insurance and in banking and business technology there is the concrete possibility of suffering damage due to unforeseeable events, these are technical risks such as fire, theft or accident harassment, whether commercial or market, such as the risk of changes in demand and supply, or prices, so we will come face to face with insurable and uninsurable risks, risks assumed or insured and risks excluded or uninsured. Like the risk of hailstorm.

Thus, we run the risk of insolvency, as debtors.

We take the risk of a new production and, if necessary, we will set up a risk fund to face possible damages.
