Posted by admin on Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Lawrence Weschler Money Quote talking about the controversial money art of J.S.G. Boggs (who died this week at 62 in Florida) and was repeatedly arrested for counterfeiting while attempting to “spend” his artistic representations of money. Lawrence Weschler said:

He could seem authentically dumbfounded whenever he got arrested for counterfeiting. He was just short of being a con man, but no more than anyone in the art world, or for that matter in the world of finance, which of course, was his whole point

Lawrence Weschler: Paper Money as Art

Posted by admin on Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Lawrence Weschler Money Quote talking about the controversial money art of J.S.G. Boggs (who died today at 62 in Florida) and our understanding of the value of art and the art of money which Boggs explored. Lawrence Weschler said:

What, precisely, is it that we value in art, or, for that matter, in money? How do we value one in terms of the other? Indeed, how do we place a value on anything at all? And, more specifically, how is it that we continue to redit the legitimacy of anything as confoundingly insubstantial as paper money?
