Dark tales of the neoliberal ethics and its dead end.

Market economy means that luxurious surrealism has come true. Endless liturgies of growth and profit witness of the breakthrough of the first global religion.

Capitalism as a religion trusts in the name of enjoyment, not in suffering, like did the earlier belief systems. Rewards are thought to be delivered already in this world. You must only cancel out ethics.

In these palaces of aesthetic production, the female body has a sacred mission as the primal fetish, marketer and consumer.

In the neoliberal society, also the freedom of speech is judged by the market. Truth must be blinded if it does not sell.

The Blinded series is inspired by an art trial case, where an art work was censored. The justice demanded that broad business may be criticized in art only if celebrities and brands are blinded so that they cannot be identified – a demand that makes market criticism impossible.
