I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



Saving was long considered a Swiss flagship virtue. But what became of her? Did not visibly be returned in recent decades into its opposite? If the citizens today seduced into a life on credit? And this makes trust preferred and joyous "Not saving behavior" might even make sense?

The exhibition pig had! goes to one of the phenomenology of savings culture the last 100 years, their breaking points is accomplished by manipulating systems of politics or economics, but also the current dilemma of a society without long-term financial confidence.

Works by contemporary artists, documentary everyday objects, scenic installations as well as media posts inspired for your own interpretation and to the great debate on a fascinating topic that we probably all busy.
