Marx Phantom / photography / 2007  «Eighth Marx’s apparition/phantom. Gespent no 8. Or in other words a man. Here, we are  in the presence of something that is closest to us and the scariest. The essence of phantom  in general is intimidation. This is especially true for a person who is most of all  “unheimlich” of all the phantoms.» 1.  Derrida introduces the term “phantom” to  designate the pseudo material which constantly tries to slip away from us and which twists  the classical ontological opposition of reality and illusion. This is exactly where we can  find the final retreat of ideology, the formal matrix on which different ideological  conceptions are stapled..   1. Jaques Derrida, “Marx phantom” pg. 161.
