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

    A gold-coated Roman balance was used as a yardstick to measure economic issues. It weighed water (basic source of sustenance) against a briquette of 1-million shredded authentic euros bills, intended as either social or functional objects. The structure of the balance has been modified in such a way that it was never possible to find an equilibrium between the two weights, rendering the continuous refilling of the bowl fruitless any time water was evaporating during the 3-month exhibition.

    At the same time, the public was invited to attend a talk on April 16 to think about these issues in the context of a public discussion at Bauhaus Museum Weimar.
