  1. THE MIDAS TOUCH – MONEY TALKS
    2019
    Size: variable; Materials: gold-coated brass, iron, pure distilled water, 1 million shredded euros.

    -----------------------

    A gold-coated Roman balance was used as a yardstick to measure economic issues. It weighed water against a briquette of one million shredded euros bills that can be both understood as either social or functional objects.

    At the same time, the public was invited to attend the lecture Mind Palaces: Another trouble with money: Resisting the economy or the economy of resistance?, held at the Bauhaus Museum of Weimar a few days after the opening at the Schiller Museum.
