Kassenbons sind die neuen Menschen: Receipts are the new humans







 







  •  


Are receipts the new humans? Without any doubt. We meet them everywhere, we obtain them everywhere and more than once a day. They are meanwhile certainly more numerous than we are. So for this work, I simply had to wait several months and collect the “precious” black-white receipts, which follow us everywhere. Then, I just had to make a cloth with all of this collection, since the receipts “stick on us”. But this work is not just about making this cloth, but it is about wearing this particular T-shirt, to show itself with it. Then to relate two messages to each other “we are now what we ‘re wearing” and “Fight against this, which isn’t in the natural order of things”. I have also done a performance with this T-shirt as “center”, as a representation of our present society and was even in a public space – the “Muthesius Art School” with this outfit. When I was there, I handed out leaflets about a presentation and discussion about the present situation in Europe – Bank rescue, austerity, absence of solidarity and humanity, oblivion of the human rights and so on… Oblivion of the human being to the interest of money. I walked through the school –the cafeteria, the administration offices and even disturbed a preparatory class for the entrance examination of this artschool – which I was myself about to do. Under the motto “Move! Create art, but also keep in mind to change things, in your own way of being and behaving. Love people, like the society, become part of it but above all get involved. in how things are changing, how this world develops. Don’t stay inactive in your own world, seeing just what you want to see or what you do, examine the contexts which are existing and which we are all part of.”
