Abstract (English)

"If the exchange of goods and services are like twigs and branches floating along a complex network of rivers, streams and canals called the global economy, then how can we account for the undercurrents that brew deep below the surface without which the whole enterprise would remain in a state of perpetual stagnation?

This is the very question explored by Richard Ibghy & Marilou Lemmens in a book of emblems that take as a starting point the spread of beliefs and desires as well the affective impressions that participate in the processes of economic valorisation.

Between conceptual writing and poetic expression, Tools that measure the intensity of passionate interests is a contemporary version of the Baroque book of emblems that combines “textual snapshots” along with original designs and mottos to provide distilled visions of the subterranean landscape of contemporary capitalism." -- Artist's website.
