God and Money

God and Money - Lecture and Discussion with Christina von Braun, Tomáš Sedláček, Sigrid Weigel © Kevin Dooley
Where does the belief in a system of paper bills and noughts come from?
While the gold standard was already rather dubious, the credibility of a system of freely fluctuating significates is even more acutely questionable. God and Money discusses the importance of religious cults and rites in the evolution of money. On what promises is money as a transaction medium based? To what extent is money a symbol of unification? And what are the cultural differences in the handling of money, credit and indebtedness?
