The Museum Of Capitalism

A one-night exhibition of reactions to the crash 

A one-night exhibition in a temporary art space in Kreuzberg will examine the reactions of artists, film-makers and individuals to the current financial crash.

Called The Museum Of Capitalism, the exhibition will be a mixture of gallery space, presentation sessions, and a late-night party on Saturday February 7.

“We wanted it to be a party, because until now much of the reaction to the crash has been negative. However there are many people in the world who see these financial movements as positive, as an opportunity to move the economic debate of our time beyond capitalism,” Museum coordinator Joel Alas said.

The main feature of the Museum will be a presentation by The Yes Men, a US-based political satire group who mock world financial systems through their films. Their new movie ‘The Yes Men Fix The World’ will premiere at the Berlinale Film Festival, giving them an opportunity to travel to Berlin and talk with locals about their work. They will show clips from their actions and talk with the public during a special presentation from 21.00.

The venue is Beta Haus, a deskshare/artspace building near Moritzplatz.

Local artists and individuals are being invited to contribute their own ‘exhibits’ to the Museum. Wall-based art, sculpture and video presentations are being sought. Contact Joel if you would like to take part: joel(a)beastnation.com.
