It investigates the impact of finances and economy on our existential conditions. It explores it as a cultural system, that performs diverse fields. These include the field of art, communication and ethical values.

Museum /Collections
Museum/Collections raises active questions about the museum, the act of collecting, and the status of legitimation as systems of belief and narratives of power. It includes interventions, installations, mise-en-scène, video, archives, performances, letters, and documents.

Wherever an object is exhibited (or otherwise singled out), it enters into a "conversation" with other artifacts and, according to the context in which it is placed, it champions an array of particular views which, inevitably, differ from a host of other views. Both as metaphor and agent (not only within the art world), it becomes part of the negotiations—and the struggles—over how we understand the world and what our social relations should be. (Text by Hans Haacke, from Viewing Matters, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen)

These projects operate on drifts and lines of flight. Revisiting the vanguardist inheritance, they turn to the rhetoric of the symposium or conference, psychogeography, the tour, activism, bar talk, the creation of laboratories, live magazines, or new devices. In these exercises, the artistic practices—through the use of performative strategies of mimesis and camouflage— become invisible.

Art & Capital brings together a series of practices exploring the flows between normativized constructs of economy, devices of art and cultural phenomena. The media are installation, graphics, performativity, drawings, objects, symposia, enactments, laboratories, videos and publications.

Some of these projects involve different languages such as development of graphs and economic calculations, financial information, courtroom drawings, notarial documents and tactics of taw. Their strategies can be simulacra, mimesis and camouflage, second versions, para-realities or real facts.
