BANK NOTE SERIES

2014-2015

50 parts, each 35x29x3cm

Schroderus' banknote series features genuine banknotes from various countries. New hair has been embroidered on the notable figures appearing on the banknotes. The banknotes series examines current issues about money and its power. A banknote is a contractual piece of paper. What makes it so sacred that the implementation of these works is illegal in many countries? What can we justify with money or the lack of it? What is the value of a banknote and the value of a work of art? (text:Laura Kuurne)
