82 x 89 cm
300 trillion Zimbabwe dollars represents the amount of Zimbabwe Dollars required to buy one US Dollar on the black market at the height of inflation in February 2009. The shredded bank notes in this work are Z$50 Billion Zimbabwean Special Agro (Agricultural) cheques. This currency was initially only intended for farmers, but it found its way into regular use because of the parallel functions with bearer cheques and the exponential rise of food prices.
