Zeit ist Geld (Time is Money)

2-part action - Academy of Fine Arts, Stuttgart, July 1999

First part (one week)

Valerian tea is distributed to the people going in and out of the Academy cafeteria at lunch time. They will pay the tea with their time rather than with their money (valerian is a natural sedative).

Second part (one week)

Valerian tablets are made available to the customers. This time, as the tablets are smaller and more powerful, they will be paid with more time.

Third part (not completed)

A proposal is made to the Stuttgart Synagogue to repeat the previous acton within their premises. The proposal is rejected.
