This November is the 100th anniversary of the worst month of hyperinflation in the Weimar Republic Germany, a period that remains as a warning of both the economic and political implications of monetary exploitation. The period is replete with stories of the worthless wheelbarrows of paper fiat currency and prices at restaurants that went higher between the time that food was ordered and when it arrived at the table.
This project imagines so what might happen if someone hac enough money to buy a large house at the beginning of a month. The next day, that money could only buy an apartment, the next day it would only buy an automobile, then a cow, then a motorcycle, until finally that money could only purchase bread, a cup of coffee.
There are 30 images in the collection, each representing a day in the month of November, 1923.
