“Capitalism is an art form […] Everyone born into capitalism has incurred a debt to it.“, Sexual Personae, Art and Decadence from Nefertiti to Emily Dickinson”, Camille Paglia(1990)
“Pecunia non olet“ (a latin saying meaning “Money has no smell”)
It was supposed that ISIS (State of Iraq and Syria) is financed by CIA through currant accounts based in banks from Switzerland. At the same time it is supposed that the same banks are hosting art pieces pillaged by ISIS in the Middle East under the request of secret international art collectors. In Switzerland Muslims are forbitten to build minarets since the referendum that took place in 2009. One paradox inside an other.
