"Postcapital" revolves around the far-reaching changes having evolved worldwide in social, political, economic, and cultural realms over the last two decades, their watershed moments emblematized in the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall and the attacks on September 11, 2001. Here, Andújar views the developments subsequent to the “fall of the Wall” not as aspects of postcommunism but rather of postcapitalism. Emerging here is the question as to what extent capitalist societies have changed in absence of their erstwhile counterparts and which new walls have been erected through the global politics following events of 1989 and 2001. Chronology
The expansive setting is framed by a voluminous frieze of images delineating a subjective chronology of events having taken place between 1989 and 2001. The first and last images are derived from an advertising campaign in a South African daily newspaper operating with the slogan “The world can change in a day.” One motif shows the Berlin Wall on November 8, 1989 and the other the square at New York’s World Trade Center on September 10, 2001.
