The Capitalist Bathroom Experience @ The Museum of Capitalism


  • Museum of Capitalism 55 Harrison St, Suite 201 Oakland, CA 94607 United States

Art for a Democratic Society is thrilled to present a project entitled "The Capitalist Bathroom Experience" as part for the Museum of Capitalism.

The Museum of Capitalism is an institution dedicated to educating this generation and future generations about the history, philosophy, and legacy of capitalism, through exhibitions, research, publication, collecting and preserving material evidence, art, and artifacts of capitalism, and a variety of public programming. The museum’s programs result from collaborations between a network of researchers, curators, artists, designers, filmmakers, writers, economists, historians, scientists, and non-specialists from all walks of life, including those with direct experience of capitalism.

The Museum of Capitalism opens its inaugural exhibition with a series of multimedia exhibits created by a diverse network of artists, scholars, and ordinary citizens, exploring the historical phenomenon of capitalism and its intersections with themes like race, class, and environment in the United States.
