Buy Back Manhattan

 

There is a story that Manhattan was bought for 24 dollars worth of trading beads from the Natives. We made a small workshop space of making polymer millefiori beads discussing and calculating with the audience their value and how many beads is necessary to buy back Manhattan. Questioning values, value systems.
