I Love $
I Love $
Johan van der Keuken , 1986
<p>This selection of documentaries by the extraordinary Dutch filmmaker and photographer Johan van der Keuken reveals the range of his concerns as expressed in works produced over the course of four decades. These films are shown in conjunction with our exhibition of van der Keuken's installations from<i>The Body and the City,</i>on view in our galleries through December 30.
In this lively report on the international circulation of capital, van der Keuken explores the impact of the global economy on individuals in their day-to-day lives.
I Love $ jumps among the metropolitan hubs of the world economy--New York, Geneva, Hong Kong, and Amsterdam. Van der Keuken's approach is one of tact and precision, revealing the fundamental relationship between economic and moral well-being. His interviews with those at the top of socioeconomic ladder are intercut with portraits of those living at the bottom, giving a balanced look at the way capital flows through society, defining individual lives and cultural attitudes along the way.
