The pure can – a gleaming form when unprinted and unfilled. With minimal intervention – punching out a slot – Coco Kühn redefines it as a money box. From an artistic point of view the “Money box” appears as a quotation of her room installations – meter-high piles of hundreds of can blanks entitled “Dosierungen” (“dosages”: a play on the German word for can, “Dose”) whose frame of reference picks up on the Minimalist art of the 60s. Kühn’s minimalist “Money boxes”, each signed, are packed in round transparent boxes indicating the can’s function in nine languages (English, German, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Japanese).
