Art and History: Philippine Emergency and Guerrilla Currencies During WWII
Jayson Urquia Salibay (2021)
Emergency and Guerrilla currencies are collected due to their historical value, but it may also for their artistic significance. The Philippine 'Notgeld' differs far from German types due to differences in aesthetic and printing standards. The elements visually presented reflect the local identity and national economic struggle as a whole. Philippine Emergency and Guerrilla notes have more to offer than historical value. The next time you examine these notes you will remember the artists and the men behind the notes who once considered them as precious as life during the warring years. Speaker: Jayson Urquia Salibay.
