Reading the Economist

Main Menu

Reading the Economist is presented in the context of Future Park II – Reproduction Direct from Nature to investigate the relations between the capitalist economy and image reproduction to see how these mediate our urban reality. Here, Formwalt gathers several archive documents from the late nineteenth century when the first credit panic occurred in Britain. Texts and images taken from Karl Marx’s notebooks, The Economist and the American Daily Graphic, re-link and re-write historical connections and stories from this period allowing for a reconsideration of the current economic crisis.
