Just like playing make-believe, or playing with man's senses and usual actions, is a freedom and attribute shared by artists and children, Art has no ambition of operating on reality, except for escaping the function the world gives it, to use its inoperativeness to open an alternative, inverse, space of freedom.
It also poses questions that can be answered by heuristic hypothesis.
Artists' enquiries are forever pregnant. And in this show, there is a question-potential that stands out: how can we imagine a world without capital?
From the pieces Nuno Henrique uses to punctuate the Museu do Dinheiro, some hypothesis emerge, configurations of thought: when we abolish, or invert, accumulation and extraction, the parabola of wealth.
