The Artists Between Documentation And Activism
In another register but with the same urgency, David Greg Harth, an artist who lives a few blocks from the towers, has printed phrases as declarations to terrorists such as "i am not terrorized" or "i am not afraid" on one-dollar bills that he has exchanged in the street. To this day, more than 200,000 bills are in circulation. "I wanted to act fast, communicate rapidly, what is more rapid than money, especially since the WTC was financial symbol", explains the 27-year-old artist, who realises the contradiction of using the symbol of the american power as support.
