Baby Marx

This is the original teaser for Baby Marx, an ongoing project by the Mexican artist Pedro Reyes that explores the intersections of mass entertainment, ideology, and contemporary art. The teaser was produced for the Yokohama Triennial in Japan in 2008, and was followed by a television pilot shot in Mexico City in 2009. The exhibition Baby Marx, on view at the Walker August 11–November 27, 2011, uses the tools and procedures of documentary filmmaking to develop and expand on the questions raised by the project to date.
