Capital (It Fails Us Now) is a group show exploring the notion of capital, taking point of departure in the one hand location, and on the other subjectivity: how capitalism affects our daily lives, our very structure of feeling and perceptions. Capital is here understood as an economic tool, as a measure of exchange and surplus, and as something at once regulated and regulating (regarding both state and market), as well as a producer of subjectivity (through the commodification of everything). The exhibition in Oslo is the first half of a two-fold project, with the second, expanded version taking place at Kunstihoone in Tallinn, Estonia Jan 7-Feb 14, 2006.
A book including artistic contributions and essays from Will Bradley, Katja Diefenbach, Stephan Geene, Brian Holmes, Trude Iversen, Oleg Kireev, Isabell Lorey, Gerald Rauning and Natascha Sadr Haghighian will be published.
