Begüm Erciyas

Eine Spekulation / A Speculation


English / 

We constantly hear how ungraspable and abstract the flow of capital has become in the globalized economy. Money and its history indeed seem to be characterized by a slow but radical passage from an object’s materiality to its absolute immateriality. If currency continues to move further and further away from being a physical object, how can this development be transferred into a choreography for money?
