Explores a wide range of perspectives on the economics of the image and images of the economy Published to accompany an exhibition at Jue de Paume Museum, Paris, from February - June 2020 Preface by Quentin Bajac, director of Jeu de Paume, previously head of photography at MoMA Edited by widely published Peter Szendy, author of The Supermarket of Visible translated into English at Fordham University PressArt and economics have entertained a complex and decisive relationship since ancient times. But for over a century, what is at stake goes far beyond the mere art market: what we face now is the commodification of all that is visible. We live in a world that is increasingly saturated with images. The photographs, drawings, paintings, videos, films, digital works and multimedia installations selected for the exhibition cast a keen and watchful eye over these issues. On the one hand, they reflect the upheavals that currently affect economics in general, whether in terms of unprecedentedly large storage spaces, scarce raw materials, labor and its mutations towards immaterial forms of work, or in terms of value and its new manifestations, such as cryptocurrencies. At the same time, however, these artists' works repeatedly interrogate the future of images and things visible in the age of their globalized 'iconomics'. This exhibition catalog is a collection of short texts providing a wide range of perspectives on the economics of the image and images of the economy. A number of classic essays have also been reproduced, in part or in full. Includes contributions from Emmanuel Alloa, Herv Aubron, Matthias Bruhn, Yves Citton, Elena Esposito, Maurizio Lazzarato, Catherine Malabou, Marie Rebecchi, Marta Ponsa, Antonio Somaini, Peter Szendy, Leah Temper, Elena Vogman, Dork Zabunyan and Miren Etxezarreta Zubizarreta.

Already in 1929, Walter Benjamin described “a one hundred per cent image-space.” Such an image space saturates our world now more than ever, constituting the visibility in which we live.
