The exhibition will be presided by the banners of the installation of Bankrupt Banks, a series of works that explore the effects of the international financial crisis since 2008. A critical view of financial institutions is also represented in two versions of Investment Bank Flowerpots. Models of the corporate head quarter buildings of the world's largest investment banks are transformed into flowerpots containing hallucinogenic plants. The suggestion that society’s greatest hallucination of all is money, is also materialised in the printed work Euphoria Now. The suggestive title is introduced on a bright background based on the colours of banknotes of the Swiss franc.
The film installation European Union Mayotte, reflecting upon migration, and the participative installation Corruption Contract are also part of the exhibition. The combination of these works pictures a critical background of discussion on some of the present political and economical issues in Spain, as well as in a global context. The title of the exhibition derives from a current marketing campaign of the bank BBVA and is intentionally speaking directly to each single visitor, as an invitation for active reflection.
