CASH – group exhibition & performances

Aug 2023  

1. – 10. September 2023

Collapsing payment systems are reinforcing the call for better transactions methods. When we say better, we usually mean cleaner, more secure, and more transparent. But what kind of “dirt” will we have rid ourselves of when only contactless payment methods are permitted? Behind such questions lies more than just the fight for preserving cash. It is about negotiating participation and exchange in a broader sense. This group exhibition is dedicated to the traces of transactions: Visible or invisible, digital or analog transactions, which here in particular also become audible. In installations and sound performances, concrete themes such as hyperinflation in Venezuela or a music of broken ATMs are presented. In addition, the fragility of matter and bodies becomes conscious, along with their acoustic sediments.
