A Matter of Trust. A lecture by Carlos Noronha FeioA Matter of Trust. A lecture by Carlos Noronha Feio


A Matter of Trust lecture performance is a non-partisan low formality presentation of an alternative currency collection of the same name. 

Through this lecture-performance Noronha Feio speaks, comments, criticizes, and tells the story/history and strategies behind currencies as diverse as the socialist thinker Robert Owens' 1830s National Labour Exchange time-based banknotes; the wild capitalism present in Russia's MMM ponzi scheme; Cildo Meireles 0 Dollar notes; WW I transitional emergency Notgelds; and artist Fran Illich's Spacebank, amongst several others. In A Matter of Trust, the artist's objective is to lure the spectator into a world of possibilities and strategies present in everyday exchanges, which are, importantly, available to anyone willing.
