Photographs from "Making Money: It's So Simple" October 7, 1988, the first of two evenings of performances titled "A Job Was A Job" October 7-8, 1988. "A Job Was A Job" was part of the event "Bedtime Stories" October 7-November 1988, organized by Mindy Faber, Dani K., Jean Parisi, Sue Reynolds, and Peter Taub. "It's ELECTION time again, and the end of the Reagan Era is officially at hand. In honor of this occasion, RSG will present a series of performances, video screenings, and gatherings to help us remember our part of what the last eight years have been all about. [...] Boggs is a performance artist who draws money, and then 'spends' the drawings. He gained international attention a couple of years ago when he was tried by The Bank of England for 'counterfeiting' English currency. Boggs was subsequently acquitted of the charges (jury members rushed up after the trial saying, 'I love your work!'), and continues to confront questions of value by offering his works as payments instead of cash. 'Making Money: It's So Simple' Boggs will take the audience on an outing to actually spend one of his drawings. Attendance is limited to 60, so reserve space early!" --[Source: Event calendar -- October/November 1988]
