Vive le Capital explores, celebrates, and critiques the omnipresent power of global finance at its venue, the former Bank Union building in Shanghai’s historic Bund district.
The exhibition aims to flush out some perspectives from artists and others that examine the momentous and intimate experiences with multi-national capitalism: its virtues and vices, catches and loopholes, what it renders visible or precarious along a discursive discourse from Marx to Piketty.
