The Detroit Dollar

“This dollar bill was given to MONA by an artist from Vienna … Rahman Hak-Hagir. We want everyone to have a picture with it … artist, non artist, young, old, famous, common, extraordinary, all kinds, everyone. We will get a picture of all of you with the dollar when you are in Michigan again.”

– Paul Smith, Project Director at Museum of New Art, Detroit

THE DETROIT DOLLAR MANIFESTO

1.
THE DETROIT DOLLAR shall only be sold its first time for a minimum of 1,000,000 US Dollars. If MONA Detroit fails to sell THE DETROIT DOLLAR while it exists, then the Dollar shall be destroyed by fire.

2.
THE DETROIT DOLLAR may be only sold by its new owner for at least twice the purchasing sum. If the new owner fails to sell THE DETROIT DOLLAR before he dies, then the Dollar must be returned to MONA Detroit. If MONA Detroit does not exist at that time, then THE DETROIT DOLLAR shall be destroyed by fire.

Each time THE DETROIT DOLLAR is sold again, all the money must be handed over to MONA Detroit. The new owner’s name and the sum that was paid must always be made public.

3.
Point 2 shall keep repeating itself.

4.
MONA Detroit and I (representing the artist collective known as “The Other Society”) will use the money that keeps coming from THE DETROIT DOLLAR to fund street art and related community projects of the citizens from Detroit.

5.
Should MONA Detroit ever misuse the money that will keep coming from THE DETROIT DOLLAR, then it shall be destroyed by fire.

6.
THE DETROIT DOLLAR shall help the citizens in Detroit to keep loving their City. THE DETROIT DOLLAR shall keep motivating them to stay united in bringing back their great hometown’s former glory!
