David Graeber

Althea Viafora-Kress and David Graeber, anthropologist, activist and Goldsmiths lecturer, discuss the psychology of the object. Graeber distinguishes Marx's fetishes, Mauss' gift theory and his ideas on possibilities. He explains how Duchamp fits in, where creative actions are held, and what "inmaterial labor" is. He also discusses his book Possibilities: Essays on Hierarchy, Rebellion, and Desire. Hear how these are connected to capital and where the artist fits in.
