Project description
Permanent marker on rosé tape. The stripes show different types of questions and are placed on urban, public sports. Here they should "interact" or "communicate" to other pieces of art or everyday objects to create a situation. They exist to find them, to read them, to take them with, to find them stupid, to be annoyed and tear them down, to collect them; but above all: to think about.

How is the project/work related to the idea of a Universal Basic Income?
The doubt about feasibility and the fear of change usually has its roots in the lack of enlightenment, explanation and discourse. You cannot be opposed something if you have not developed an Personal attitude to it. And an attitude should only be formed when one has looked at an issue from different perspectives. That alone requires to move, be open minded and having a bit courage. But it is necessary.

In order to give people the space to enter the discourse on work, acquisition, fairness, distribution and unconditionality, and thus on life in general, on their own, almost secretly and without the pressure of confrontation, questions are asked: soft rosé in their appearance, sometimes pitch black in their content. To find them, to read them, to take them with, to find them stupid, to be annoyed and tear them down, to collect them; but above all: to think about.

What is enlightenment?
That.
