Plenary / Opening
german language

To mark the 150th anniversary of Karl Marx’s “Das Kapital”, the artistic opening of the Economic Symposium is devoting itself to it. The collective Richter/Meyer/Marx interprets extracts from the book into gestures and movements, posing the question of whether a physical approach to the text is possible.
