JULY 27 - AUGUST 4 MARX FOR CATS
An unnamed cat. In their ongoing project, Caroline Woolard and Or Zubalsky ask critical theorist Leigh Claire La Berge to explain keywords in contemporary capitalism. As they describe; ‘the interviews are presented online via a dedicated website of short cat-and-capitalism videos, that is in a large-scale installation with glass cats watching the video interviews, and as a printed text transcription of the interviews with other writing. This is the animal of the wild-cat strike rather than the fat-cat. This is sab- cat -- sabotage cat -- also known as the sabo-tabby, who the International Workers of the World used to herald a “slow- down,” a refusal of the compulsory labor time of capitalism. This ongoing conversation and installation uses glass, video, text, and performance to juxtapose the time of foregone time of capitalism with the time the anticipatory time of catpitalism.’ A variety of destination guests will be announced.
