This allegorical artwork made for the exhibition “DAS KAPITAL IST WEG – WIR SIND DAS KAPITAL” (“THE CAPITAL IS GONE – WE ARE THE CAPITAL) at¬†Kammgarn West in Schaffhausen (CH) is a graphic/pictorial unicum divided into seven narrative scenes. The idea was to depict the history of capitalism through a pattern of symbols that will connect religion protestant reform to seven universal emotions, seven stages of history, seven symbols of Schaffhausen, seven human archetypes and seven parts of human body.
