Copy of email sent today to the newy opened Bank Of Ideas in Sun St, E. London, where demonstrators have taken over an empty UBS building.
* Update. Bank of Ideas was stormed a few days later by riot police ( thought police ) armed with bolt cutters, full body armor and tazers.
Hi Bank Of Ideas,
Writing from London Bridge HQ, LONDON DADA we would like to deposit a Dada conceptual art idea to your bank.
We will be uploading an image to our Blog page today,
….Of a cashpoint machine.
Procure the services of a street artist to spray paint a lifesize version onto either an
inside or, preferably outside wall.
On the cash dispensing area of the image wall there is the zone where a sticky note pad is attached,
for anyone with a good idea/ strapline/soundbyte about an alternative society etc… to peel off and write on. The notes are then stuck back on the wall or on a dedicated inside info board, for others to read & replace.
( * Update 2015, the ideas/feedback note pinning board idea itself was subsequently copied shortly thereafter by Tate Brittain and Tate Modern and are still in situ today in the gallery entrances )
