In fact, this phrase has its origins in the Bible, which says: “For the Love of Money is the Root of all Evil.” Somehow Love vanished with the passage of time. But what would happen if Love would return to the equation, and we would start asking ourselves: “What is the Root of All Money?” Wouldn’t Love be a great answer?! 2012 - Exchanghibition Bank in Boijmans Museum - 17th of Nov http://www.dadara.nl/news/Exchanghibition-Bank-in-Boijmans-Museum-+-17th-of-Nov On the 17th of November the Exchanghibition Bank will pop up inside the Boijmans Museum in Rotterdam.

PechaKucha Night Amsterdam Volume 16 2011 - Exchanghibition Bank and Pool of Plenty online! http://www.dadara.nl/news/Exchanghibition-Bank-and-Pool-of-Plenty-online! Exchanghibition Bank and Pool of Plenty I am going to build a pool - the Pool of Plenty - filled with money, millions of money bills, bundled in stacks, not real money, but specially designed banknotes/pieces of art. People have to undress (after all it's a swimming pool) and can go into the pool but can not take even one of the bills This will be enforced by security guards surrounding the pool. This pool I want to build for the first time at Burning Man, which might be very interesting because BM is based on a gift economy, where for one week money doesn't exist and is considered a taboo by most.......
