Marx Angels is a book that formed part of a commissioned work for Chetham’s Library in Manchester, one of four commissions for the Book Works’ project Library Relocations.

Drawing on research within the library, Marx Angels contains extracts from correspondence between Marx and Engels, who both spent time studying in Chetham’s Library.

Presented as a journal and illustrated with details of hand gestures culled from the media, Marx and Engels’ correspondence is paraphrased by extracts from Pavel Büchler’s imaginary diary. These diary extracts, reading like a list of Fluxus actions, reveal the warmth, humour and the mundanity of domestic arrangements within the correspondence of Marx and Engels.
