This is one of the most grabbing artworks I have seen lately and the overall best example of conceptual protest art I have seen. I am talking about Jordi Colomer’s ‘Anarchitecton’ which is a serie of videos and pictures of people protesting with buildings as a protest sign:
That makes you think in these times of economic crisis: is capitalism actually a protest against itself?
Isn’t the only way to effectively protest capitalism becoming capitalism itself? The way things are build now there’s no way to escape the system, unless you manage to climb on top of it. The same is true about our so-called ‘democracy’: it has become the most intolerant political system ever invented, far more intolerant than any dictatorship has ever been. That is an interesting paradox.
