    Editorial 254 x 318 mm workshop held by Vinca Kruk, Metahaven The brief for this project was to recreate a physical book, Das Kapital - Das Kapital, Kritik der politischen Ökonomie by Karl Marx - using the ambiguous legal space we find ourselves in: the cloud. The Cloud is Google, Amazon, The Pirate Bay and WikiLeaks all at once. The volume is the rendering of a physical and traditional paper version of the online, not cohesive and multilingual versions of Das Kapital. The result is a book in which the computer screen deals with each double-page spread in the form of printed image. The choice of finding heterogeneous material from all the considered cloud-based sources leads to the impossibility to recall the work to a specific printed edition, reflecting the ambiguous nature of the web. togheter with Maddalena Aliprandi, Simone Gatto and Elena Meneghini Read Less

workshop held by Vinca Kruk, Metahaven 

The brief for this project was to recreate a physical book, Das Kapital - Das Kapital, Kritik der politischen Ökonomie by Karl Marx - using the ambiguous legal space we find ourselves in: the cloud. The Cloud is Google, Amazon, The Pirate Bay and WikiLeaks all at once.

The volume is the rendering of a physical and traditional paper version of the online, not cohesive and multilingual versions of Das Kapital. The result is a book in which the computer screen deals with each double-page spread in the form of printed image. The choice of finding heterogeneous material from all the considered cloud-based sources leads to the impossibility to recall the work to a specific printed edition, reflecting the ambiguous nature of the web.
