Cuentos de Cuentas
Between January 2021 and March 2022, artist and writer Carla Zaccagnini published a series of textual and visual essays as online instalments. Using personal memories and appropriated stories, she investigated the relationship to money (primarily American dollars) in Latin American countries at a time of high inflation, political incertitude, and social insecurity. Underlying her project is the pressing question: What do we lose in economic deals, social relations, and the right to secret movements, when cash is banned from society and all transactions are made through bank accounts and credit cards? An exhibition was developed in conjunction with this book at Amant in Brooklyn, New York.
