The Accumulation of Capital (riddled)

The Accumulation of Capital (riddled), 2019, departs from Rosa Luxemburg’s writings in 'The Accumulation of Capital', as an echo of her assassination in connection with the book’s content. A string of words was drawn out from the book by the force of a bullet, creating a group of riddles in the space from which different new meanings and associations with the original book may originate.

The enlarged bullet's debris extended on the exhibition space appears replicated in content but in a different form on a string, where the pieces of paper that were picked up after the book was shot are connected with magnets to the roof on a tiny room adjacent the main exhibition space.
