The passionately narrative and visual work of Alice Creischer (Berlin, 1960) brings to life the forms, moments, and situations of capitalism's history, tales of exploitation and the distortion of the basic principles of Western democracy. Researching the phenomena by which financial corporations operate internationally, Creischer uses installations, drawings, collages, articles and texts to explore the relationships between official government policy, financial business and culture, and the origins of alienation and manipulation. A thought-provoking analysis of her ethical and critical perpectives on contemporary liberal governments and financial, political, and social crisis.
