Rare Albion 1
The world of finance as you never imagined it could be!
14 – 27 February 2014
Did you ever wonder what happened to the Wizard of Oz? In the original tale he leaves the city of Oz (= 1oz of gold) departing in a hot air balloon. But where did he go?
He flew over the 20th century to land in Rare Albion, a special country where money and capital are seen as metaphors for meeting people’s material needs and financing their dreams and tasks in life.
In Rare Albion all education is built around this understanding of finance, because there that is how they ensure that financial life is stable and certain, so that it sustains social life, rather than threatens it.
This exhibition highlights how finance is understood in Rare Albion ... and how it may one day be understood everywhere.
