Both money and photography are emotionally charged in a very special way. Photography is associated with memories, and money endowed with a lot of significance. Both loom large in our everyday lives, and increasingly disappear in their physical form. The sensual qualities, emotional references, stories, rituals and manners both media command in their analogue form are changing. Moreover, the subject of money is taboo in many respects. Mila Palm’s historical collection focuses on monetary image culture from around 1860 to 1960, showing rare historical photographs, for example of banks, safes, but also of burglaries. The exhibits bear witness to the diversity of symbolisms positioning money as the “religion” of modernity. Money is not a value-neutral and timeless means of payment, but is embedded in historical and social contexts, with manifold emotional, psychological and moral implications.
