As you probably know, Karl Marx lived and died in London, where he is buried in Highgate cemetery. In honor of his 195th birthday on May 5th, the German concept artist Ottmar Hörl placed 500 statues of the philosopher in KARL MARX' hometown Trier in Germany.
We are proud to have brought Karl Marx back to London. You can now purchase the statues in 4 different shades of red in our shops and online.

The Marx family lived in an apartment in 28, Dean Street, Soho, from 1850 to 1856. From there it was only a short walk to the British Library. A memorial plaque, installed by the Greater London Council, commemorates this with the words: "Karl Marx, 1818–1883, lived here 1851–1856".
