Post-Capital: A Reader

 - Post-Capital: A Reader
Art and the economics of the digital age.
Post-Capital: A Reader is published as both a reader and a catalogue accompanying the exhibition Post-Capital: Art and the Economics of the Digital Age, curated by Michelle Cotton at Mudam Luxembourg. This richly illustrated volume documents works of sculpture, painting, photography, video, and performance by more than twenty artists from different parts of the world, all addressing production, consumption, and wealth. The images cohabit with excerpts from longer texts by some of today's most influential thinkers on the subject of our digital age, its consequences concerning human freedoms, and the largely invisible dynamics that are driving an evolving and unequal world order.

"If industrial civilization flourished at the expense of nature and threatens to cost us Earth, an information civilization shaped by surveillance capitalism will thrive at the expense of human nature and threatens to cost us humanity." —Shoshana Zuboff
