Neuer Berliner Kunstverein offers six copies of
Variationen von Kapital (Variations of Capital). A computer selects from about 40,000 possibilities different spellings of the word “Kapital”. These Nasan Tur then paints with ink on hand torn Tibet paper, so that each drawing is unique. The work refers to Capital by Karl Marx and addresses labor exploitation, mass production and artistic action.
