Boggs: A Comedy of Values - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0226893960

[SR: 593815], Paperback, [EAN: 9780226893969], University of Chicago Press, University of Chicago Press, Book, [PU: University of Chicago Press], University of Chicago Press, In this text, Lawrence Weschler chronicles the antics of J.S.G. Boggs, a young artist with a certain panache, a certain flair, an artist whose consuming passion is money, or perhaps, more precisely, value. What Boggs likes to do is to draw money - actual paper notes in the denominations of standard currencies from all over the world - and then to go out and try to spend those drawings. Instead of selling his money drawings outright to interested collectors, Boggs looks for merchants who will accept his drawings in lieu of cash payment for their wares or services as part of elaborately choreographed transactions, complete with receipts and even proper change - an artistic practice which regularly lands him in trouble with treasury around the world. This volume teases out these transactions and their sometimes dramatic legal consequences, following Boggs on a larkish, though at the same time disconcertingly profound, econo-philosophic chase. For in a madcap Socratic fashion, Boggs is raising all sorts of truly fundamental questions - what is it that we value in art, or, for that matter, in money? Indeed, how do we place a value on anything at all? And in particular, why do we, why should we, how can we place such trust in anything as confoundingly insubstantial as paper money? In passing, Weschler frames a concise, highly entertaining history of money itself - from cowrie shells through hedge funds., 413370031, Contemporary Fiction, 413367031, By Period, 413352031, Fiction, 401420011, Custom Stores, 405736, Special Features, 266239, Books, 413555031, Contemporary Fiction, 413531031, Fiction Complete, 401420011, Custom Stores, 405736, Special Features, 266239, Books, 403456, General, 91, Art, Architecture & Photography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 659900, Business & Economic History, 659886, Biographies & Histories, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 124676031, General AAS, 268153, Economics, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 124713031, General AAS, 268290, Management, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 124717031, General AAS, 268179, Professional Finance, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 124671031, General AAS, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 590756, Contemporary Fiction, 62, Fiction, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 125440031, General AAS, 276411, Social Sciences, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 400530011, English, 400529011, Language (feature_browse-bin), 365481011, Refinements, 266239, Books, 492564011, Paperback, 492562011, Format (binding_browse-bin), 365481011, Refinements, 266239, Books, 182018031, Regular Size, 182016031, Font Size (format_browse-bin), 365481011, Refinements, 266239, Books

Boggs: A Comedy of Values - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 0226893960

ID: 2352390

James Stephen George Boggs is not a con artist, he's a talented artist who deftly renders his own currency and "spends" it. Struck by the value of money, and what paper notes represent, he draws U.S. dollar bills, English pound notes, Swiss francs, and other forms of paper money; then he barters his illustrious artwork in lieu of cash to willing merchants who agree to honor his currency for services and products. In Boggs: A Comedy of Values, Lawrence Weschler, author of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award-winning book Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder, documents Boggs's whimsical antics, offering a quirky and lively meditation on the value of currency and workmanship and a richly informative (albeit brief) social history of money. Boggs does not sell his "money" directly, as Weschler learns, nor does he attempt to pass his drawings off as actual bills. For Boggs, the elaborate transaction of negotiation is a crucial element in his work, and the tangible proof of his success--receipts and proper change--is included in the final product. Of course, treasury departments from around the world are anything but pleased; the second half of the book deals extensively with the artist's court battle with the Bank of England. As Weschler notes, Boggs is not the first to question the value of money through art (Larry Rivers, Pablo Picasso, Timm Ulrichs, Adolf W?lfi, and Jurgen Harten are just some artists who have put currency to the test), but the au arts music and photography,business and investing,economics,history and criticism,individual artists,literature and fiction,movements and periods,politics and social sciences,popular economics,social sciences Individual Artists, University Of Chicago Press
