Tony Cokes. Texto de Christoph Cox: El autor como selector
This Quadern portàtil includes a text by the critic and philosopher Christoph Cox, as well as fragments of a selection of works by Tony Cokes on the occasion of the MACBA exhibition, where some of his major works are on display. Cokes has deployed a visual style marked by the use of animated text, images, monochromatic slides and videos, with which he assembles a biting criticism of capitalism using colour theory, sound, music and literal quotes from voices as diverse as Louis Althusser, Malcolm X, David Bowie, Public Enemy and Donald Trump.
The objects are intended to have the objective character of industrial products. They are not intended to represent anything other than what they are. The previous categorization of the arts no longer exists.
