On May 5th, Marx’s 200th birthday, the one-time-only multimedia experience, Dictionary of Marx
, gives you the chance to reencounter the work of the German economic philosopher Karl Marx. A dozen of Washington, DC’s most engaging presenter-performers will come together at the Capital Fringe Theatre responding to key words from the Marxist lexicon in a series of artistic interpretations. From theater performances to musical works and from film to poetry, Dictionary of Marx
explores these economic theories from today’s perspective. The viewer will also have the chance to engage directly, whether in a creative writing workshop, a game of Anti-Monopoly, or a philosophic discussion at the bar.
Presented as part of the Goethe-Institut’s international series Marx Now
, Dictionary of Marx
is curated by John Feffer, novelist, playwright, and director of Foreign Policy In Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies.
