Steuerfreie Einkünfte (2011–)

Steuerfreie Einkünfte (tax-free income) grew directly out of the long-time project Bilder von der Straße. Looking out for abandonded photographs in the streets, it was inevitable that I found other things, too, such as money. Usually, this would be in the form of small coins but occasionally, I would find a banknote. For many years I simply picked all these up and put them in my wallet. In 2011, before the completion of Bilder von der Straße, I began to make annual inventories of the found money. The project’s accounting is public. A complete report will be published in book form when the project is completed.
