yesterday i went to visit her time/ bank installation with anton vidokle at documenta (13). i deeply recommend you to go there. i feel like its possible to built up another world economy and that i am not a lonely dreamer! feeling so happy to have somehow collaborated with this wonderful art piece!

“time/bank is a platform where groups and individuals can pool and trade time and skills, bypassing money as a measure of value. time/bank is based on the premise that everyone in the field of culture has something to contribute and that it is possible to develop and sustain an alternative economy by connecting existing needs with unacknowledged resources.”

julieta has been traveling the world with this project making several events/ art actions in new york, berlin, moscow and at documenta/ kassel.

its about sharing what you have contributing for a better world, where no money is needed.

thank you dear julieta for your kind invitation! its a great honor for me to be part of this beautiful concept.
