Ever spent all day in an IKEA store? That’s exactly what Israeli artist Guy Ben-Ner and his family do in his newest video, Stealing Beauty.

Known for incorporating his wife and two children (ages 13 and 8) in videos that question social and political issues, Ben-Ner focuses on the family unit and domestic life in a capitalist society. He and his family literally move in to an IKEA (three actually, in New York, Berlin, and Tel Aviv) and act out their daily routines on camera—eating breakfast, reading stories before bedtime, washing dishes—all the while discussing the virtues of capitalism.
