Will Work For Food — What Does Value Mean

Will Work For Food


„Was ist das WERT“ Festspielhaus Hellerau
Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 56 • D-01109 Dresden
The Wert/Value perfomance reenacts Karl Marx’s contribution (VALUE, PRICE AND PROFIT) to a discussion on trade union activity that took place at a meeting of the General Council of the International Working Men’s Association in April, 1865.

While baking fortune cookies and reading chapter VI (Value and Labour) of “Value, Price and Profit”, one of my vehicles is drawing and whistling the Internationale. The cookies are filled with snippets of the drawings.
