Alfred Jaars Infinite Cell refers to the cell(s) where Italian Marxist Antonia Gramsci was imprisoned for 6 years since 1926. During that time he wrote what is know today as the Prison Books and has deeply influenced current post-Marxist thinking (e.g. Negri, Bologna). In Jaars installation through a mirror the space of the cell becomes infinite from a certain view point. The 2010 Marx Lounge at the Liverpool Biennial is basically a collection of Marxian and leftist books presented in a lounge situation.
