In The Money Shot, Streffen examines the tension between finance’s material and abstract forms, counterpoising money’s theoretical abstractions with its material realities. She identifies the rematerialisation of the art object (building on work by Shell and Steyerl) as the heart of three key strategies used by artists to respond to dematerialized technologies of high finance: burning and falling; vanishing and reappearances; promises and lies.
