invited by the cultural space carrérotondes in luxemburg, fabrica will present ‘colors of money’, an exhibition which explores the approaches, uses and understandings of money. based on the 73rd issue of colors magazine, the show concludes that ‘money is an illusion’. it brings together a myriad of contradictions embodied by money’s role in our modern society.

works exhibited will include photography, creative writing, art and interactive installations which have been conceived by fabrica artists. in this current state of financial problems, ‘colors of money’ provides unorthodox insight into our world effected by this economic crises.

‘colors of money’ is a journey through the unexpected, diverse drifts of the monetary world.
