Unlike Das Kapital
apparently, as Irish artist Duncan Campbell just got a Turner Prize, and $40,000, for doing so;
A film that features a dance routine inspired by Karl Marx and
examines African art has won Britain's most prestigious and
controversial art prize.
....It For Others,
which was described by the panel as "an ambitious and complex film
which rewards repeated viewing", is a response to a "film essay" from
1953 about African art and colonialism.
This archive footage is
interspersed with new material, including a dance routine based on the
equations in Karl Marx's seminal work, "Das Kapital," created by the
choreographer Michael Clark.
All of this is overlaid with a voiceover that imitates the style of a lecture.
Take that, Piketty.
