The Discreet Charm of Marxism
A six-course idea
‘Food for thought’, that is The Discreet Charm of Marxism. Marxist texts on the class struggle and revolution are staged as a six-course meal, nicely divided into portions, from starter through main course to cheese platter and dessert. You eat, read and discuss it with the other guests. The ‘food for thought’ is presented in graphics, while real food and drinks are served as ‘books’. Nobody will go hungry! In this ‘conversation piece’, the audience has the main role, but the extent to which you take part in the conversation is entirely up to you. No talking with your mouth full, though!
