Alfredo Jarr’s ‘ The Marx Lounge’ at liverpool Biennale comes close to a Smizz hot Fantasy! phewwww!
The Marx Lounge includes recent publications provided by the UK’s primary radical publishing company, Verso Books, and copies of The Communist Manifesto translated into the minority languages of Liverpool. Activating the work is a lively discursive programme of talks and discussions by leading thinkers in the field and an accompanying poster campaign on public sites around the city. The Marx Lounge is a complete experiential environment where audiences can sit, read, speculate and come to their own conclusions on the relevance and viability of Marx’s ideas today.
In addition, Alfredo Jaar presents a new three-channel video work, We Wish to Inform You that We Didn’t Know, in the old Scandinavian Hotel building.
