People who have saved this event:


For his first exhibition at Galerie Barbara Weiss, the New York-based artist Rainer Ganahl presents work from his ongoing series Manhatten Marxism.


In Manhattan Marxism, the artist combines his interest in the ideas of Karl Marx – a description of an economic sphere not detached from other parts of social life but its very foundation – with a local and personal perspective. In the exhibition the artist observes his neighborhood through this lens in two video installations and portrays constant change in a city founded as a colonial outpost of capitalism's first global players. But Manhattan, the biggest machine of capital flows throughout the 20th century, is like many other places also a stage of continued financial crisis, and the linguistics of the dadaistic politics around it inform a so-called Credit Crunch, a buffet merging slogans and junk food.
