DOLLAR DANCES ON OUR ASSES PT. 2

A question:Is the easy metaphor, or anti-capitalist symbolic gesture of burning money in order to make art negated by a recession? As a fan of Drains work it's a bit of a headscratcher, even if it was just ones--though I doubt burning $20s would change anything. Admittedly, I have never been to Art Basel or any mega art fair, so maybe that's the context that I need for it not to seem both lame and bougie.
