ENJOY YOUR NEW LIFE
Kultursymposium Weimar, 2016
In the context of Kultursymposium 2016 under the topic of sharing and exchange in culture and society, we helped visitors to create a new identity by producing personal business cards on the spot, with the explicit invitation to invent a new occupation for themselves. In networking events, the business card defines us to the people we meet. We tried to create a situation in which we come to know each other as persons, rather than for professional purposes since it was clear to participants that all the stated occupations are fictitious. Participants, allowed to be what they always had dreamed of, not only started questioning their current occupation and the way they had chosen but also started playing and speaking with each other in a playful way based on curiosity and humor.
In collaboration with Vienne Chan and Rebecca A. Layton.
