This is how banks check up on their investments: 'Credit Suisse' bought this object from me in 1994 for the price of 9000 Marks(at that time about $7000).They sent me a pic of it (a few weeks ago) and wanted to know the price of a similar object with similar dimensions. So I sent them my current price list of 'similar things'. They replied saying that I've helped them a lot! So I wrote back and asked them: "With what did I help you". No reply. End of story. -Banks wanting to control again.
Back then I was happy to make a sale to anyone but now I'll make a special price list for Banks and other Institutions,tripling the prices!
The object : 'Untitled' (Hardwood and plywood, 184cm x 22cm x 22cm, Dirk Marwig 1994)
