Reasons to Rethink

“Even though money is something of our own invention, if you don’t have it, it could mean your death.” Michael Kluver wanted to add marginal notes to our monetary system. For this purpose, he devised drawings for all seven euro banknotes intended to call attention to the weaknesses in the monetary system, because, if nothing is done, we risk a stock market crash, the bankruptcy of entire countries and a deluge of spending. Kluver’s drawings fit seamlessly into the design of the bank-notes, enabling these Reasons to Rethink to be absorbed into the cash supply and disseminated by the very system they criticise.
