Wir müsst arbeiten


Mijalkovic assigned 10 illicit workers to position themselves in the gallery space, next to 10 wooden boxes. After a while, they climbed the boxes, later they took place inside them. The boxes, 60 x 60 x 130 cm each, were dimensioned in a way that the men would barely fit under the low ceiling when standing on them.

Being squeezed into the boxes, the workers started to run their machines: red balloons were inflated and then let go to deflate, to take off from the boxes, to move freely, and finally fall down to the floor.
