The US Dollar and the Swiss Franc represent two big economical powers: America and Europe. We tore true bank notes, symbols of the strongest currency and we glued the pieces on the coasters, giving to money a new value, less powerful but richer in humanity. The meaning of our action is based on a study, which shows us that money is, more and more, taking on a schizophrenic role in our society: On the one hand the lack of money leads to starvation and on the other hand the excess of it leads man to the self destruction. The contemporary artist can not ignore these problems any more.
