1000 Hamburgers acts as a time capsule, exemplifying what 1000 Euros could purchase in this particular moment in history. This installation transforms an abstract quantity into a physical confrontation; the sheer number of hamburgers fills an entire room. How can a McDonald’s hamburger be this cheap? As of 2019, the price of 1000 McDonald’s Hamburgers has been raised to €1250.
