A couple of months ago I found in an old jacket that I didn't wear for a year, a handful of coins in a pocket. On the way to Weißensee art college, where I am currently a guest art student, I have to cross every day near a school. All the children were playing in the yard while it was raining, I approached them and I tossed all the coins in the air falling within the school. Suddenly time stopped, there was some seconds of silence and tension. Suddenly all children began running to catch, the more coins, the better. An exalted girl shouted "Fünfzig Cent !!!" (fifty cents!).
What else would have generated the same reaction in a group of children in such an abrupt way, if not money.
