In ‘Currency for a Caring Economy’ the spotlight is set on the domestic worker and their invisible, but highly essential role in society. Before creating this documentary extensive research was done upon global demographic shifts, the next workforce, cryptocurrencies, and sentimental analysis algorithms. With this knowledge, a conceptual currency was created which to reward domestic work. In the documentary two domestic workers and caretakers were interviewed on topics such as combining work with children, workload, if domestic work should be monetarily rewarded, and how this fictional currency could be invested.
