IHLE, Carolina  and  CONTRERAS, María José. Value! Patrimonial Auction. ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2017, n.97, pp.7-11. ISSN 0717-6996.

Since value implies an agreement - a consensus - between two or more people, it may happen that something that is valued within a circuit lacks value outside. The performance VALUE! Patrimonial Auction challenges this problem by recreating (with all the needed paraphernalia to make it convincing) an art auction in which the pieces on offer have evidently no value: literally, bags full of dust.

Keywords : performance; art; conservation; heritage; speculation..
