EXPO_war_currency

Currency and exchange

One way of accessing the image of power in society is through the instruments that power uses to organize society, and money is one of them. How to organize daily life under bombs, under threat, under scarcity? How to go to the queues that facilitated the obtaining of food resources, of basic services? Under the exceptionality, the currency, the money, the tickets to access the train, the streetcar... were a testimony of the difficulties with which to face the daily life of the war.
