As a regenerated Liverpool enjoys its status as European Capital of Culture and anticipates the opening of Europe’s largest retail development, Variable Capital presents a timely comment on today’s consumer culture. Organised by artists David Campbell and Mark Durden (who work collaboratively as Common Culture), the exhibition presents international artists’ critical and often humorous responses to how we produce goods and spend money.
