I received this amazing email recently. Enjoy! and perhaps reading will spark ideas of your own.
hey Marie Kazalia
I noticed this page of yours about Money and Art – http://pinterest.com/mariekazalia/money-art/ – and thought you might be interested in my Art as Money project, so decided to send you some pics, text and links…….
here below I copy-pasted some links and text
A bit over two years ago I started my own bank as an artist – the Exchanghibition Bank. It’s a traveling bank booth, which pops up at many places. Some of them are cultural, such as the Rijks-, Boijmans and Stedelijk Museum, or Paradiso. Others are very public, such as Amsterdam Central Station, Occupy, or even shopping centers. Visitors can exchange their money for our banknotes of Zero, Million, Infinite, and others.

The bank has also traveled to the Burning Man Festival in Nevada, which is based on a gift-economy and where money doesn’t exist. Here our customers could sign a Spiritual Karma Laundering contract to bring their spiritual Karma debt back to Zero, and would get a Zero banknote in return.
Last summer we built another project in the Nevada desert – the Transformoney Tree. It’s a tree which has the Exchanghibition banknotes hanging as leaves from its branches while the tree itself got covered in real banknotes, glued onto it by participants. People turned those banknotes into art, by drawing and painting on them. I think it would actually be great to make the tree come to Zurich and organize workshops where bankers could turn money into art and glue it on the tree 😉

Here’s a video of a talk I gave at the Boom Festival in Portugal about money: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MKhbFJBpkU
And here’s an interview from a few weeks ago when we did a whole week of events and performances in Berlin with the bank:
The website of the project is http://www.exchanghibitionbank.com and the Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/artasmoney
I enclosed pics of performances with the bank, the tree in the desert, some banknotes (all the originals of the banknotes are real paintings……) and
some black and white drawings.
So far. I guess that will give you a bit more to explore 😉
Yours Bankingly and Dreamingly
