When so-called real socialism collapsed, Marx’ analyses were declared to be washed up and some spoke of finally reaching the end of history, of the victory of the market and democracy. But in 1993 the French philosopher Jacques Derrida reminded us that the spectre of Marx would not dissipate so easily. It turns out he was right.

With the series “Marx’ Gespenster” [Spectres of Marx] HAU Hebbel am Ufer ties into the topicality of Marx and attempts to track down innovative ways of articulating against contemporary forms of capitalism. In view of the capitalist permeation of society, the series will not only take a look at aspects of politics as a whole, but also and especially will present reflections by artists who are subject to day-to-day forms of self-exploitation and demands to self-optimize in their practice.
