'The surplus value, or that part of the total value of the commodity in which the surplus labour or unpaid labour of the working man is realised, I call Profit'
Karl Marx - From 'Wages, Price and Profit' 1865


Surplus Value will not make elitist esoteric statements for the art establishment. Our intention is to produce clear, simple, accessible messages addressed to all those whose labour is commodified. The sources we will draw on will be fundamentally Marxist as opposed to Western Marxist or Post-Structuralist. In this sense we see social labour as the driving force of history, the prerequisite of capital and the origin of all wealth.
