"White money", therefore, shapes or reinforces inequalities and re-iterates racist and neo-colonial structures. Flinn Works, like all art professionals who work across the invisible borders of Global North and Global South are deeply entangled in this structure. Working with a group of six artists and curators from different parts of the world, the project sheds light on some hidden aspects of "white money".

ADEREMI ADEGBITE invents and inaugurates the first Nigerian Cultural Institute of Yoruba Culture. ANUJA GHOSALKAR reflects on the complicated ethics and harsh economic realities of working as an artist in India. REHEMA CHACHAGE shreds a heap of rejected funding applications and transforms them manually into something radically new. ABHISHEK THAPAR takes the audience on an intimate and speculative journey through their bank accounts, hearts and minds. AZADE SHAHMIRI’S lecture performance shows representations of the West in Iranian plays and poses questions from the past to the present. NORA AMIN sheds light on the history of so-called "belly dance" in her solo performance, wrestling the dance form from the exoticized and voyeuristic gaze and transforming it into the empowered expression of the dancer.

White Money as a project also seeks to stretch the boundaries of German funding regulations – by letting the participating artists decide on how to spend the money. Because this project is also funded by "white money".
