Susanne Bosch. Leftover-Coin-Action – Let's collect our idea-capital

The Leftover-Coin-Action – Let’s collect our idea-capital is a project by artist Susanne Bosch carried out as part of the exhibition Who Pays?. Between the beginning of March and the end of May 2017, two mobile collection points toured from municipality to municipality throughout Liechtenstein.

People could not just throw in their spare coins but particularly their ideas and wishes for the future and commons in Liechtenstein. The underlying idea is to use the spare coins collected to put yet unrealised ideas and wishes into practice and to harness unused intellectual capital by means of equally unused economic capital. In addition to the collection points, the artist herself also travelled with her "ear to the people", having countless conversations and encounters around the country.

With the exhibition Who Pays? now over, Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein is dedicating its Seitenlichtsaal to a two-week retrospective of the Leftover-Coin-Action as a social process that took many different forms. The aim is to showcase the project in terms of various aspects, from collecting to a number of different formats of identifying criteria and selecting wishes. On show are not only objects from the action, including the two collection points, but also a documentation of the process, as far as possible, in the form of numerous photos, audio, newspaper and video excerpts.

To kick off the exhibition, the final public decision making and planning of the wish to be fulfilled took place on 27 May 2017.
