2006, 2007, Money Will Save the World, Festival dell’Economia, 01-04/06, Teatro Sociale, Trento Money Will Save the World, 2006, 2007 (In the atrium of the Teatro Sociale of Trento, during the Festival of Economy on Wealth and Poverty (1st-4th June 2006). On the following year, in the atrium of the Palais de la Bourse, Palais Brongniart, in Paris during the international conference TBLI Europe Conference (15th-16th November 2007). )

Instead of the usual snacks, a vending machine offers paper bills of countries in which people are dying of hunger. The snack packages contain the equivalent of the coins put into the vending machine, exchanged for pieces of poor currency, as well as lead customs seals – amounting to the weight of a brioche – and a production code leaflet that says “Not edible”. The Paris installation was identical to the one in Trento.
