Enrique Chagoya : "Illegal Alien's Guide to the Concept of Relative Surplus Value": 2009 Color lithograph : 15 x 80" :

Surplus value is a concept written about by Karl Marx. Although Marx did not himself invent the term, he developed the concept. It refers roughly to the new value created by workers that is in excess of their own labour-cost and which is therefore available to be appropriated by the capitalist, according to Marx; it allows then for profit and in so doing is the basis of capital accumulation.
