capital | digital
Thu, 21.06.2018, 6 pm CEST

On the occasion of the Karl Marx anniversary in 2018, the ZKM, in cooperation with the University of Trier, presents the exhibition »generator marx: kapital | digital« in the »»generator, the media art laboratory of Trier University, curated by Peter Weibel.

Starting from Karl Marx and his influential critique of the industrial capitalist system, the exhibition poses the question of the nature of capital in today's post-industrial society. Key terms such as »labor« and »commodity production«, which were central to Karl Marx's analysis of industrial society, correspond to current terms such as »data« and »distribution«, which allow for a critical analysis of the economy of the digital age.

The ensemble of works of art metaphorically reflects the dramas and disasters of different economies and brings together two economic eras by virtue of exhibition space and exhibited works.

We cordially invite you to the exhibition opening on June 21, 2018 at  »»generator, the Media Art Laboratory of the University of Trier at 6 pm!
