A Danish museum wants to recreate 534,000 crowns (BRL 450,000) taken in cash by an artist using banknotes. Despite the commission, he produced blank canvases entitled “Take Money and Run”.

Danish artist Jens Hanning received the commission from the Kunston Museum. He was invited to recreate two of his works, which represent annual salaries in Denmark and Austria.

After the artist pocketed the money and created the blank canvases, the museum’s response so far has been mixed.

“He messed up my curation team and he messed up a little bit with me, but I had to laugh because it’s so much fun,” Lacy Anderson, director of the Museum in Alberg, told BBC News.
