While in Copenhagen we also visited the ‘headquarter’ of the art project ARTMONEY. Nice to meet with Lars Kraemmer, founder and facilitator of this fantastic project; an alternative currency made as small unique works of art. (More about the concept here).
Lars is a very out-of-the-box-thinking artist and event manager, you may say. Residing in Denmark – but with a past in the United States/Canada and surroundings.
In 3 months the project is going to have an exhibition at A Gathering of the Tribes at Lower Manhattan. My works will be part of it – so right now I count all my buttons and consider wether to go in person – or not. I’d love to be physically present at the opening – but I don’t really see where to find the financing…
Anyway, please contact me if you know of a vacant guest room 2 weeks in September somewhere in New York in the low budget end of the scale. Private or B&B-like. Of course I’d also be delighted to pay the entire bill (or any part of it) in my very own artmoney!
