1. Money Art as a Commodity

Often art collectors manage their art collections in much the same way investors manage their portfolios. To make it easier for them, we created this sculpture called Commodity. Not only it looks like one but also it can be treated like any other commodity purchased for speculative purposes, whereby the deal is about value and time..

Every commodity is made up of between 28 and 31 stapled art prints (representing a month), which are fixed by two steel bands onto a transportable euro-palette.

2. Money Art as a Hedge Fund

This sculpture is reflecting the current economic situation and is focusing on funds which extend the principles of finance capitalism to art, which regard and treat art as a financial asset. In reference to this we called it Hedge Fund, whereby the deal is about value, time and people

Short description: This outdoor installation consist of all art prints of the year 1994 (365 pieces of money art), whereby we cut each art print into two pieces - like detaching a coupon:
  • The bigger parts (the drawing) are assembled on roofed wooden boards and are fixed to the ground - like houses, like a village. 
  • The other parts (the small print at the bottom [number, date, price]) are collected and are either a transferable proof of ownership or - if you bundled them - they can be treated as shares or issued mortgage bonds.

3. Money Art as Sharing

This sculpture brings together two oppositional developments in the art market.

One is that more and more art works are not public, they are not even private, they are imprisoned in climate-controlled warehouse with high-tech security. The owners of this locked-away art works are not interested in art at all, they don’t even want to see it. The only purpose is to hold safe the art while waiting for its price to rise.

The other development is the effort to install a new art market, to find a workable and market-compliant solution, which has the power to improve the lives of everyone involved with Art, from Artists and their buyers, to dealers and gallerists - like the forward-looking 7/11 Project by Paul Sewter.

This art work is meant for a collective and therefore called Shared Sculpture, whereby the deal is about sharing value and time.

This travelling sculpture consists of rules, mutual agreements and 100 art prints, whereby we cut each art print into two pieces: The drawing and the small print, For details like rules, agreements and imprisoned art, please open picture gallery at your left.

8. Money Art as  Art Labour

There are a few artists, stars of the art market, who make a lot of money, but at the same time the big majority of artists have a hard time earning their living.

When we created this kind of living sculpture, we were temted to ask for a minimum wage (Labour week = 5x HoCs x current HoC-price), but then we would have missed the point. Therefore the price for a labour week, for our manpower, will be found strictly on the market by an auction. Therefore no minimum price or limit, whereby the deal is about the Value of our Art Labour.
  • Each Labour Time Sculpture consists of 5 HoCs, representing a labour week, and an one-day-contract of employment on each back, signed by Kmentemt.
     
  • The winner of the auction becomes the owner of 5 labour days and of the 5 art prints too. Our question to the winner will be then: "When and how can we serve you?"
     
  • In a mutual agreement we will find the week in 2016 or 2017 and a job description (performance, event, workshop, fair, cooperation, discussion, ..., holidays together) and - as it is -, the outcome will belong to the employer.
Limited Edition: 1 week per leap year

Labour Time Sculpture Nr.: x
a. HoC: 5x HoC prints, each with an one-day-contract of employment
b. Date: 5 comming days, find in a mutual agreement
