Interpreted for the twenty-first century, God of Money is based on extracts from Karl Marxs famous chapter on money, published in Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts, 1844.

Drawing on the biblical tale of the Fall, Maguma creates a surreal world continually fuelled by an insatiable desire for more.
