Jan Arnold Gallery, Electric Avenue
Admission free

From Oct. 21 to Nov. 14, Syrian artist Osama El-Siamant will set up a production facility in the Jan Arnold Gallery of Vienna’s Museum Quarter.
An agent and several refugees of his artists’ collective will work there six hours a day, seven days a week producing Euro bills with crayons. After numeration and registration these bills will be offered for sale at nominal value as a minimal donation. The whole proceeds go directly to the refugees.

In a painfully subversive way Osama refers to the dilemma of labor bans on the one hand, and the economy of exploitation paradoxically longed for by the refugees. The production of counterfeit money by people who, after the expulsion from their home countries and the hardships of flight, must now start fom scratch in the receiving countries, thus becomes a scary metaphor
