Hans-Peter Feldmann,  the German artist won the eighth Hugo Boss Prize. The award is given twice a year by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation for its achievements in contemporary art. The winner receives prize money of $ 100,000. Feldman has not the money then parked in his account or investing in real estate, but that papered the walls and pillars of the large exhibition space in the Guggenheim.  It took thirteen days to spin up the 100,000 one-dollar bills with thumbtacks. The work is exhibited still till  2 November in the Guggenheim Museum in New York issued ( via iGNANT)
