how to value?

how to value  – Machtwelten – actualitas – Braunschweig, 2010 – collaboration with Process Institute
In a mobile public bank the Process Institute produced and distribute money to passers-by to pay for the under valued work they contribute to society, and in doing so examines the public’s relationship with labor, income, economics and capitalism. This action grows out of the history of Notgeld, which was “emergency / necessity money” issued during times of economic crisis (post-war Germany , Spain in the 14-15th centuries, Italy in the 1970s and Argentina 2001-02 during the financial crash). We wanted to use this example not only as a criticism of the macro-level of global finance, but to explore the micro-political importance of the empowerment that results from appropriating value-systems on a local/individual level.
