Money, money and even more money

There are a million ways how to use your money. I bet that this option of using money never crossed your mind!

This is a room in the Guggenheim Museum wich is filled to the brim with 100,000 $1 bills. The money is actually a honorarium that the 70-year-old artist Hans-Peter Feldmann won for for significant achievement in contemporary art. This is known as the Biennal Hugo Boss Prize.

He thought it would be a unique gesture for the museum to actually see how much money that is.He also said that this amount of money was special to him because art never was connected to money in the 1950′s when he started making art, and now art has become far too commercialized.
