Envisioned as the post-Euro currency, Drama anticipates the new world order while recuperating the pathos of the old Greek Drachma. Otero-Pailos explores a politically and culturally charged icon, which has returned to haunt not just the Greeks, but also the ideological foundations of Europe in Hellenic Classicism. Working with modern Greek drachmas that were in circulation before the switch to the Euro in 2002, Jorge subtly erased some letters to let the word drama appear on the currency notes. It was not lost on us that Greece was the birthplace of theatrical classical drama some 2,600 years ago. Drama comes as a stunningly beautiful modern commentary on our current financial crisis and a reminder of what we owe to Greece, in this case, both the drachma and the drama, pun intended.
