Anja Kirschner & David Panos An Exchange for Fire: Sacrifice (2012), video still

For their Channel 4 Random Acts commission, Anja Kirschner and David Panos present five shorts that bring together footage shot in Greece during 2012 with texts by Clinical Wasteman that redefine the terminology of the current global crisis. Each episode traverses moments from the history of money, the creation of the modern fiscal state and contemporary life under capitalist 'restructuring'.
