“Ghouls, ghosts, werewolves and vampires form a rich layer of imagery in Karl Marx’s Capital
These monsters continue to haunt discussions of capitalism as metaphors for consumerism, greed, the modern bureaucratic management of life and, mostly, systems of labour
The event will explore these links between politics, art and the gothic imagination through presentations and screenings of work by Roman Vasseur, Annabel Frearson and Pil & Galia Kollectiv, followed by a discussion between the artists about spectres of the market and the demonology of Capital”
Pil and Galia Kollectiv have recently shown work at Trade, Nottingham, and Ort, Birmingham, as well as the Athens Biennial and the Stedelijk Museum. Roman Vasseur recently had a solo exhibition at Cubitt, and Annabel Frearson has exhibited at xero, kline & coma and the Camden Arts Centre
