ART- "THE BANKNOTE PROJECT" BY STEFAN KUHN

Andy Warhol once said that “Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art. “ But art and money have very controversial and complex relationship with each other, even though they are both have almost have the identical characteristics. Both are a symbols of something else and are driven by supply and demand. There’s even a research study did by Tilberg University and Yale School of Management that states it is the wealth of the wealthy’ that pushes up and drives art prices, and more often that a rise in income inequality may well lead to higher prices for art. But there are still a lot of artists that are uncomfortable on being labeled a “sell-out” .

It’s very interesting to find out that artist Stefan Kuhn created a project based on money. Stefan Kuhn’s “The Banknotes Project” captures the state of flux of global money flow in photos. The artist collected banknotes from different countries. The bills at` all ‘stages of life’ are photographed. Both, ‘hot off the press’ banknotes of active currencies, as well as collectibles and historical commemorative notes or reprints in small print runs. He blended the fonts, cores and backs of the bills into a new perspective. Taking the historical component of each banknote, the changing exchange rate on each reproduction and the date of publication are compared with the current reserve currency for the following period.
