Lourenço Soares

The Economic Problem

publication with Lemon Press Zurich, 2024

The Economic Problem is made up of images selected from economics textbooks. Through a process of zooming into these images, Lourenço Soares exposes the hidden ideologies within the non-space of the textbooks, in effect, deconstructing their original context. Along with the textbook narrative, the publication delves into the reader’s capitalist identities, offering a critical exploration of the intersection between visual representation, ideology, and personal economic perspectives.
