Mexican director Pedro Reyes and his crew, who have been hard at work on his project Baby Marx at the Walker Art Center for the past couple of weeks, have now released the first couple of clips from the film they are creating.
The idea is to have economic giants Karl Marx and Adam Smith wander the Walker in puppet form to argue economic theory, while maybe critiquing art, and the modern world.
The first clip released today involves their reaction to Andy Warhol's silk-screen of Jackie Kennedy.
