MONEY POWER, installation A paper with red stains and a printed quote of Abraham Lincoln. Also a print of a body part (from chin/neck over shoulder to arm/hand) framed by a rusted barbed wire. All this is mounted on a metal plate with rust staines. This work was created for a theme exhibition of the Kunstverein Erding in 2006 „ Die Unvollendete“ (The Incomplete)

 / Auf einem zerknüllten Blatt Papier mit roten „Blut“-Spuren ist oben der Ausschnitt eines männlichen Körpers zu sehen (Vom Kinn/Hals über die Schulter zum Armgelenk zur Hand), der von rostigem Stacheldraht umrahmt wird. Darunter das Zitat (in Deutsch) von Abraham Lincoln. Alle Elemente sind auf einer Metallplatte mit Rostspuren befestigt. | Translation quote: The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. The banking powers are more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. They denounce as public enemies all who question their methods or throw light upon their crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe. Corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow. The money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed. Abraham Lincoln, US-President, 11-21-1864
