The dollar bill with a clown’s nose has become an iconic piece by Hans-Peter Feldmann. This highly symbolic banknote with the portrait of George Washington is reinterpreted by a Dadaist gesture. The act of adding a clown’s red nose to this portrait is Feldmann’s way of making an ironic and humorous comment on capitalism.
