Coins of the Integration, 2000

In connection with the idea of a greater cultural integration by means of dreams, illusions and utopia, which we artists of the Caribbean and Latin America have long been striving for, it has occurred to me to propose a collective currency. The project aims to begin integrating our countries culturally but also via economic affiliations. I am exchanging these coins (Caribe or Condor) here for other countries' monies, and people take them with them and show them around and begin to talk and think about this topic.
