The Dictionary of Marx

From FB event:

Come and expand your views on Karl Marx!

Dictionary of Marx is a one-time-only multimedia experience based on the work of the German economic philosopher Karl Marx.

A dozen of Washington, DC’s most engaging presenter-performers will come together, responding to key words from the Marxist lexicon in a series of works accompanied by live music.

With interpretations ranging from theater performance to poetry reading, from film to monologue, and from lecture to happenings and interactive experiences, Dictionary of Marx explores these economic theories from today’s perspective.
