Research for the Bermuda Triangle (RBT) invites you to a one-night intervention presented at SomoS Art House. This project will be the launch for the new line of soap Geldwäsche infused with the essences of exchange rates, or simply put, money.
The Geldwäsche unique soap bars are an experience in self-washing, and while cleansing the skin, they celebrate, predict, and examine the mechanisms of currency pegging.
For those new to the economic term ‘currency peg,’ this is a practice by which one currency is fixed to that of another currency. This policy is done to maintain economic stability, trade predictability, and to prevent hyperinflation: over sixty-six countries ‘peg’ their currency to the United States dollar, and twenty-five to the euro. The benefits and drawbacks of such an entwinement are complex, something that RBT would like to clarify through the cleansing properties of personal soap bars.
A variety of these specialty soaps will be available for sampling and purchasing during the event. Complimentary currency-inspired cocktails will be served, and a demonstration of possible uses for the soaps by RBT will take place in the gallery at 20:30.
The artists welcome you to Geldwäsche to experience their exceptionally rich product by exploring the health, beauty, informational, and sensational benefits of washing with money!
