God of Money

Interpreted for the twenty-first century, God of Money is based on extracts from Karl Marx’s famous chapter on money, published in Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts, 1844.

Marx was a young man at the time, critical and defiant of an emergent world of rampant greed and consumption. Spanish illustrator Maguma recreates this celebrated rant against the mind-numbing power of money in the context of contemporary developments — where the spread of avarice on a global scale has led to the near death of the commons. In this accordion-style book, Maguma folds open a surreal world which is continually fuelled by an insatiable desire for more.

Karl Marx

Karl Marx (1818-1883) was a philosopher, economist, sociologist, journalist, and revolutionary socialist. Born in Germany, he later became stateless and spent much of his life in London in the United Kingdom. He published numerous books during his lifetime, the most notable being The Communist Manifesto (1848) and Das Kapital (1867–1894).
