About the art

I tried to do some simple splits in the wet filler while wearing clogs and a blindfold for this work. I used paper cups as support.
The word is derived from the Latin "capitalis", which means "of the head" (caput). In capitalism, capital, the means of production, comes from the head and the work thus from the body. The separation between body and mind, that is, between the subject and its bodily abode, is, therefore, an essential part of the inner logic of capitalism. The symbolic - language is given a more significant value at the expense of the Real - raw materiality. As capitalism develops, criminal correction shifts from the punishment of the body to the discipline of the mind. Since it is only the mind that has value, it is the mind that needs to be controlled, not the body. Corporal punishment has now been largely abolished, but capital punishment has also decreased in scope. Both methods assume that the mind (the subject) is indistinguishable from the body (matter). It is incompatible with another separation within the capitalist system, namely the economic exchange from labour that generates it. If the subject can not be separated from the body, the profit from the production apparatus can not be expropriated by the head - the capital, but rather belong to the whole body, i.e. also the workers - the employees.
