Karl Marx, Maguma

Interpreted for the twenty-first century, God of Money is based on extracts from Karl Marx’s famous chapter on money, published in Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts, 1844. Marx was a young man at the time, critical and defiant of an emergent world of rampant greed and consumption.

Spanish illustrator Maguma recreates this celebrated rant against the mind-numbing power of money in the context of contemporary developments — where the spread of avarice on a global scale has led to the near death of the commons. In this accordion-style book, Maguma folds open a surreal world which is continually fuelled by an insatiable desire for more.
