The Fetish Speaks!

Detroit: Black & Red. Offset, accordion-folded on multi-colored paper. 9 pp. 5 3/4 x 9 3/4 in. Very good; minor edge wear. Item #6920

A graphic retelling of Karl Marx’s theory of commodity fetishism illustrating quotations from Capital.

First published in Black & Red No. 5 in January 1969, this version, made as a discrete publication, takes the form of a 10-panel accordion brochure on yellow, pink, orange, and blue paper. Commodities ranging from a toilet and Ajax to bottle caps and home furnishings “speak” to one another through word bubbles quoting Marx. A visual representation of the economic relationship between things that serves to demystify Marx’s often dense language.
