With “Baby Marx,” Mexican artist Pedro Reyes ‘reboots’ Marxism as a children’s puppet show in order to explore the possibilities for radical popular education today.   In this episode produced for an installation at the Walker Art Museum (Minneapolis), Karl Marx and Adam Smith argue about alienation and fight over a cookie.
