Claire Fontaine, Untitled (Someone is getting rich), 2012
Claire Fontaine lifted this universal statement from graffiti found in New Orleans, Louisiana, after Hurricane Katrina (2005).
New Orleans was a financial centre of the US South during the time of slavery. Dutch financiers contributed to its creation.
Claire Fontaine is a collective that considers herself “a ready-made, feminist, neo-conceptual artist.”
