The Communist Manifesto (how the west was lost) 2020 Hand-woven archival ink-jet prints 150 x 77 cm
100 RMB made out of the entire text from The Communist Manifesto.
The Communist Manifesto by Marx and Engels is one of the world’s most influential political documents. It looks analytically at the class struggle and at capitalism. It does not however predict the future forms that communism would take.
The current form of communism practiced in China has evolved since Mao’s time. It now has what is called a socialist market economy (Socialism with Chinese Characteristics) and it embraces many forms of capitalism.
China has also been the world’s fastest growing economy for some time and it looks as if it could be on its way to take over from the US as the world’s dominant superpower.
I think that this Chinese 100 RMB note made out The Communist Manifesto sums up this story visually.
