Public treasury (economies of reality)


Catalogue of the exhibition Public treasury (economies of reality), published by Artium of Alava. Preceding and cutting across the history of money, art has been a culturally privileged place for representing value. From the value of the material to the value of the product to the symbolic and speculative value, what a certain culture has deemed valuable has found in art a metaphor and metonymy. With publicly owned works from the Artium Collection, the Public Treasury exhibition attempts a reflection on the functions of the museum as a place for developing and gestating our common heritage.
