Once upon a time there was….an illustrated guide to capitalism by the illustrious Ddk. The philosopher tries to explain capitalism through twitter trolls and vice versa. When coming to talk about the troll, it is not about any psychological fact: anonymity which is supposed to free this aggressive and violent instinct otherwise repressed. It is about the logic of the capital. Instead of using the well-known images from Wall Street and the usual Marx rhetorics, Ddk gives an explanation of capitalism through Twitter instead.  Sensible and non-sense Tweets (both popular and/or political) are intertwined with manga and anime imagery. Image and text are inter-related but work in mysterious ways. From the beginning to the end an estrangement is present. Frustration is expected. 


Onomatopee Z001 An illustrated guide to capitalism is the first release in a series of zines to be published throughout 2017. Released within the WEBSTACLE project at Onomatopee, 2017.
