Magdalena Gerber | TRUST TROC

TRUST is a project at the frontier of art and political action.
A proposition of Magdalena GERBER
It is rooted in the utopia of a more egalitarian sharing of wealth through the commitment of each individual.
With its banks and many headquarters of international organisations, Geneva is a humanitarian and monetary hub.
Following the example of counting sticks, on which, from the Middle Ages to the beginning of the 20th century, tasks to be accomplished, rights in the common ownerships and debts to be paid to a creditor were carved, thus I engraved monetary values and distinctive signs on pairs of black sandstone coins.
At three meeting points during the exhibition, visitors can obtain half a stick for free. In return, they pledge to donate the amount shown on the stick to a charity. This donation can contribute to a modest redistribution of wealth.
Next Trust Trocs - 5 February 2023
