Transformoney 2.0 Exhibition with banknote- and moneypaintings, objects, and drawings from Dadara’s Art as Money and Exchanghibition Bank project. Also the first showing in public of the Transformoney Tree model, which will grow to become a big tree in the Nevada desert during the Burning Man Festival.
You can help this tree grow by bringing a customized banknote to the opening. Interaction with the Transformoney Tree could help us with the shift from a fragile mono-money-culture to a diversified world of many alternative currencies, providing tools for exchange of various forms of value as a necessary alternative for our current debt-based-system, which is focusing on infinite economic growth on a finite planet.
Are the roots of this tree the roots of all evil or the roots of all happiness? Hopefully they’ll become the roots of a new consciousness!
Money has become almost a part of our Nature, so it’s difficult to realize that for a big part of their history humans have lived without Money, and maybe this will be the case again in the future. But even long after Money will be gone, Nature will still be there and we might still be able to pick things of real value from trees. The coolest banknote will win a limited edition banknote print – these prints will be introduced for the first time at the opening! And last but not least there will also be the introduction of a special coin.
Opening on the 23rd of June between 16.00 and 19.00
Exhibition lasts till the 4th of August.
Famous is open wed-sat from 11-18. Address: Weteringschans 83, Amsterdam. Phone: 020-4235423. Email:firstname.lastname@example.org
The Exchanghibition Bank will pop up as well, giving you a chance to acquire the new 011000010111001001110100 and 2.0 banknotes, which will be issued during the opening.
And come early so you won’t miss the opening performance!
