project description

independent work

How is our European identity? Which privileges do we have and how are we dealing with foreign requests? Do we have overcome our euro centrism or are we now in a new state of an isolating culture? Is it not the communication, which brings us closer to each other?


Two old telephones, one regular and one gilded, are connected. The golden one is playing the European hymn and let the ordinary telephone rings by picking up the handset. However, this connection works just in one direction. The gilded one is not reacting by picking up the regular phone. Once both receivers are lifted, there is a line between these two telephones.
