For his Postcapital archive, García has assembled more than 250,000 files (texts, audio documents, videos, etc.) from the Internet over the course of the past ten years, documenting the profound changes which have come about in the last two decades on the societal, political, economic and cultural levels all over the world. In this context, the fall of the Berlin Wall (1989) and the attacks of September 11, 2001 are configured as turning points. In contemplating the developments following the fall of the wall in Berlin, however, Andújar takes the perspective not of post-Communism, but of post-capitalism. He is primarily concerned with the question as to the extent to which capitalist societies - lacking their former Communist counterpart - have changed, and what new walls have been erected by the global politics introduced after 1989 and after 2001.
