Each year, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, Denmark selects a new theme for an in-depth exhibition that, while relevant to local Danish issues, looks at the connections between people across geographic borders in a globalised world. This year’s theme focuses on global economies, with the first exhibition in the series entitled Show Me the Money!
“Under the auspices of this overarching headline and the exhibition Show Me the Money!, we invite everyone to take part in a discussion of real estate bubbles, economic crises, money streams, the distribution of goods and much more,” the exhibition’s curators share. Show Me the Money! puts under the microscope aspects of economies past and present, featuring a selection of works by artists from Denmark (Astrid Myntekær, Nanna Abell, Rune Brink and Superflex), from the surrounding regions (Caroline Achaintre [FR]; Cooking Sections, Ellie Harrison [GB]; Inuk Silis Høegh [GL]; Philip Wiegard [DE]; Stefano Tsivopoulos [GR]) and even from the late New Zealand artist Len Lye.
