MONEY, a work condensed to the extreme declining multiple points of view, is a document on the situation of the practice of the "contemporary" among poets, musicians and dancers in the New York of the 80s. Initially filmed on the streets of Manhattan for its noise, movement and occasional pedestrian encounters, to create a tableau rich in swirling colors and architectural spaces juxtaposed in close-ups, and to show the intensity of the city's overflowing energy that is so familiar to us when we live here. MONEY's theme centers on a discussion of the economic problems facing avant-garde artists under Reagan. Phrases translating music or movement are woven into this conversation to create an operatic-like composition.
