On Tuesday 1st of May the Art Reserve Bank will be officially opened. The start of this new cooperative bank was long due but is now a fact.
Everyone is welcome starting 17.00 hrs
at the bank's head office
Gustav Mahlerlaan, Zuidas Amsterdam
The first series of four coins is designed by the Scottish artist Bill Drummond. We are very pleased he will come over from London to mint the very first reserve coin of the Art Reserve Bank.
After a tumultous career as a media-artist, Drummond's work is nowadays concentrated on intimate performances which usually take place in a private or anonymous setting. However, for this special occasion Drummond has agreed to execute one of his rare public performances around the site of the bank.
He will need exactly 100 volunteers. Everyone can join for no special skills are required.
Would you like to participate in this unique event, then please sign in here.
