CEREMONY

by Phil Collins

synopsis

What is the relationship between Manchester in 2018 and the Russian Revolution of 1917? The German philosopher Friedrich Engels, who wrote the Communist Manifesto with Karl Marx, lived for years in this British industrial city. Through this founder of communist theory, artist Phil Collins investigates what remains of his ideas in today’s United Kingdom. How would Engels view the world today?
