LoveCurrencyWhat a great email – hopefully it went to lots of bankers, too!

When bankers get together for dinner, they discuss Art. When artists get together for dinner, they discuss Money – Oscar Wilde

Dear fellow Money or Artmoney colleague.

We all have heard that: “Money is the Root of all Evil”. 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?!

Some might argue that love should not be used as a currency, because Love is priceless. But shouldn’t we start appreciating more those values that can’t be quantified in our world?

And shouldn’t we start loving our exchange and each other, instead of loving the material means of exchange: Money?

So the newest Exchanghibition banknote does not have a numerical value. It’s not about Zeros, or Millions, or Infinites or anything else which quantifies. It’s all about Love.

This Love banknote can be used to add some love to your payment. Not because of your love for money, but because of your love for the person you’re dealing with!

If you use this banknote to add Love to your payment, or recieve one in the future, then please share the love and your experience at www.artasmoney.com/love, so we can track the Love, and put you on the Love Map.

Creating the Love banknote, and realizing that our new banknotes should not only have numerical values and denominations was another interesting step in the amazing trip that this whole ArtAsMoney project has become. But it was not the only fascinating new step this year. Equally fascinating and mind boggling was my stay as an artist-in-residence at a “real” bank: the ASN Bank.

So far another occasional update on what we are doing. If you want to escape the clutches of this bank it’s easy: use the unsubscribe link below. And if you want to share some of your ideas and philosophies on our blog then please let me know, and we can help you spread your ideas.

Yours Bankingly and Lovingly

CEO and Founder Exchanghibition Bank
