Raqs Media Collective:
The Capital of Accumulation

Join us on Saturday 5 October, 2pm at the Lopdell Theatre for a free one-off screening of the film 'The Capital of Accumulation' (2010) presented by the Raqs Media Collective as part of our current exhibition 'twenty-four-seven'.

This 50-minute video grew out of a familiarity with the work of philosopher and economist Rosa Luxemburg, and specifically her 1913 polemic 'The Accumulation of Capital.' Here, Raqs Media Collective offer a trawl through a haunting, dream-like landscape straddling Warsaw, Berlin and Bombay/Mumbai to produce a riff on cities, capitalism and the twentieth century's turbulent history.

Raqs Media Collective (pronounced rux) was formed in 1992 by Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula and Shuddhabrata Sengupta. Raqs practises across a variety of forms and media; it makes art, produces performances, writes, curates exhibitions, and occupies a unique position at the intersection of contemporary art, philosophical speculation, and historical enquiry. The members of Raqs Media Collective live and work in New Delhi, India. https://www.raqsmediacollective.net/
