Moving Money probes the questions on the minds of many in the midst of the market’s free fall and the ongoing economic uncertainty: Where did the money go? Was it ever there at all? The invisibility of today’s monetary world has become troublingly apparent. We do not “see” our money. It has been dematerialized and turned into an abstraction. While market makers have been using this abstraction to multiply profit, artists have been addressing these questions concretely by using money as both subject matter and raw material, literally and metaphorically, challenging its abstract value. Moving Money brings together artists whose work tries to make visible the abstracting tendencies of our monetary system and our relation to it.
