Trials of Money
Duration approx. 4h
Trials of Money is an artistic project that opens an investigation to the responsibility of money, as it appears and is used in our contemporary society. It‘s about bringing money – or rather the worldwide monetary system – before a court and to bring an honest action against it. The case is staged in the most plausible way and the audience is implicitly designated as the grand jury of the trial. Thus, it will be appealed to take position and to put itself above all reasonable doubt concerning the guilt or innocence of money in this case, prosecuted by human civilisation.
