When money becomes creation

When money becomes creation

What is your view of money? That's the question the artists in this exhibition are trying to answer.

Does money have a soul? A heart? Whether a performance piece or a monumental structure, the works in this show represent an artistic investigation of the place that money holds in our economic and social models.

For some it is the result of desires and frustrations, while others question the transition from a system based on barter to the invention of the stock exchange. Thomas Hirschhorn, Jose Maria Cano, Jiri Georg Dokoupil, Thomas Locher, Libia Castro and Olafur Olafsson, and Dan Perjovschi are among the invited artists in this spirited and engaging exhibition. Who knows, maybe one day the works will be worth their weight in the gold!
