The End of Capitalism

Description (in English): 

“The End of Capitalism” is an interactive Flash movie compiled from a variety of sources—archival films, animated educational materials, televised interviews, and passages of text—all of which pertain to ideas and attitudes about capitalism, ranging from pro-capitalist propaganda reels from the American post-war period to the artist’s own provocative statements on the nature of life in a capitalistic society. Enhanced by an eerie sonic backdrop, the sequence of words and images are arranged through a movie engine which allows for viewers to end and initiate new segments as they click on the multi-colored buttons that appear as a recurring motif throughout the piece.
