• Accompanies an exhibition at the Nationalgalerieim Hamburger Bahnhof (Berlin) from July 2 - November 16 2016• Includes 40 modern, contemporary, and old master artists exploring the complex relationship between human creativity and capital inspired by the Joseph Beuys installation Das Kapital Raum 1970-1977• A beautifully illustrated catalogue which includes paintings, photographs, graphic works and objects, both modern and ancient, from worldwide collections. This show develops themes based on the Joseph Beuys work Das Kapital Raum 1970 - 1977 (created in 1980 for the Venice Biennale), one of his largest environment pieces, now on indefinite loan to the Hamburger Bahnhof. It explores a dialogue between art works of different periods around the role of art as intellectual capital, addressing the nature of capital and human creativity. The catalog, which follows the plan of the show, is divided into three thematic sections (Debt, Territory, Utopia) and is prefaced with an essay by curator Eugen Blume on Beuys' Das Kapital Raum. The first chapter, Debt, argues that debt, both in the material and moral sense, predates money and is far more fundamental. The second chapter, Territory, explores the connections between capital, discovery, and conquest. Chapter 3, Utopia, reimagines the economic concept of capital as an intellectual asset and a creative force for the future. The catalog also includes texts by Georges Bataille, Audre Lorde, Soren Kierkegaard, and Hannah Arendt. Featured artists include: Marcel Broodthaers, Larry Clark, Stan Douglas, Nam June Paik, Andreas Gursky, Paul Klee, Jeff Koons, Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, Kurt Schwitters, Yinka Shonibare, Thomas Struth, Rosemarie Trockel, Cy Twombly, Jeff Wall, Andy Warhol, and Franz West.
