Reading Lenin with Corporations is a series of interviews conducted on Wall Street and a reading seminar for corporate employees that took place at PS 122 Gallery in New York in the summer and fall of 2008. The project brought together artists, writers, and corporate employees to discuss the current state of globalization in the intersection of politics, art, and culture. Lenin's text Imperialism the Highest Stage of Capitalism was at the core of discussions in the context of the modern philosophical and political debates on Imperialism.
