The Museum of Capitalism comes to New York City with an exhibition at The New School featuring traveling artifacts and exhibits from the museum’s inaugural exhibition in Oakland, as well as commissions and loans from NY artists and institutions.

This exhibition traces a loose theme around borders, both physical and conceptual, between nations, between what was known as “the economy” and related domains of political, social, and environmental concern, and between institutions like the Museum of Capitalism and The New School. Exhibits and artifacts on display include American flags made by prison laborers, photographs of secretive international tax-havens, and an interactive hand-crank machine, which allows visitors to experience “minimum wage.” Loans from other collections include a series of objects from the U.S.-Mexico border and the world’s largest collection of branded pharmaceutical pens. On display for the first time, from the museum’s own collection, is documentation of a rare encounter between the infamous street artist Banksy and the multinational corporation Walmart.

Exhibits and artifacts on view were created and collected by: Daniel Bejar, Ben Bigelow, Dr. Jeffrey Caren, Center for Tactical Magic, Maia Chao, Cheyenne Concepción, Mark Curran, Jennifer Dalton, Sharon Daniel, Burak Delier, Clare Dibella, Blake Fall-Conroy, Paul Farber, Gabriele Galimberti and Paolo Woods, Marisa Morán Jahn, Nina Katchadourian and Julia Meltzer, Matt Kenyon, Gelare Khoshgozaran, Jessica Kingdon, Michael Mandiberg, Nyeema Morgan, Tim Portlock, Related Tactics, Eva Rocha, Sayler / Morris, Jesse Sugarmann, Igor Vamos, and Banksy and Walmart.
