Judith Kakon (* 1988, Basel) takes the symbol ¤ as the title for her artwork, sited on Kunsthalle Basel’s back wall. It is a sign that denotes an unspecified currency, first encoded for computers in 1972. The artist places it, along with various terms of the global realty trade (PRIME, TRUST, ESTATE, etc.), rendered in hand-wrought iron and set against a wall painted in the grey specific to computer applications.
