This initiative of the artists Julieta Aranda and Anton Vidokle grew in The Netherlands to a considerable community of users and organizations that accepted time/bank Hours as a means of exchange. The Time/Bank is recognized by the press and financial organizations as an alternative economic platform initiated by the arts but with a clear impact beyond the cultural field.

In 2013 Stroom helped to become an autonomous organization and keeps on facilitating its service desk in The Hague. Service Desk

With current decreasing budgets, local governments stand for the challenge to build a civil society in which local stakeholders and citizens take their responsibility as well. In search for new instruments that fit this new reality, community currencies emerge as an instrument. A particular type of community currencies is “time banks”.

The Naked

The Naked is an initiative by five artist/curators connected to five independent art spaces based in The Hague, the Netherlands. The goal of The Naked is to set up a unique large scale international exhibition based on the existence of artist run spaces and mentalities; a celebration to alternative practices and other independent organisations dealing with the presentation of art.

The Naked Blog identifies the status of contemporary art as seen from a local point of view. Based on the feedback of many curators and artists around the world we hope to gather a larger overview of the current trends and values that matter within the arts on a global scale.

The Naked is accepting Hour Notes as payment for advertisements.
