»Kunst = Kapital« [Joseph Beuys, 1985f]
Our economic system has made itself invisible and eludes understanding. In recent years, we have often been left with little more than a vague and unsatisfying feeling that something is going wrong. But what? The documentary film »Oeconomia« exposes the rules of capitalism and makes visible in an episodic narrative structure that the economy only grows, that profits are only possible if we get into debt. Beyond the distanced phrases of reporting, which ultimately always make it impossible to understand the monstrous, »Oeconomia« sets out with great acumen and lucid stringency to illuminate contemporary capitalism.
Before the screening, there will be a discussion on the topic of »Capital – Humans and Money« with director Carmen Losmann, a representative from the world of finance and the artistic director of »beuys 2021« Dr. Eugen Blume.
