A project for Trafo Gallery, Budapest, by Cesare Pietroiusti and Paul Griffiths, curated by Hajnalka Somogyi with a contribution by Pierluigi Sacco

You are asked to contribute to this project by sending one or more bank-notes in a currency that is in use in your country, as long as their value seems significant to you.

We will make a catalogue of all the senders’ names with the number and monetary value of the bank-notes sent.

We will study and prepare all possible ways to irreversibly alter the paper material out of which the bank-notes are made through physical, chemical, or biological processes.

Between October 19 and October 22, the artists will organise in the exhibition space of Trafo Gallery in Budapest a series of actions through which all these ways of destroying paper money are enacted.

The residue of these processes will be exhibited during the show.

At the end of the exhibition, the residue of the bank-notes will be returned to the senders together with a certificate signed by the artists.

Please send your bank-notes (and possibly confirm by email) by October 10th to:
