Street action

NO to Economy, YES to Poetry!

The briefing for this academic project for IADE was: ''in Portugal people are tired of news about the economic crisis, which leave them in a depressing mood. The goal of this action is to remind people that there's more to life than the economy. For example poetry.'' The action itself consisted of a giant black and white poster with pictures of sad people, their bodies tatooed with numbers and the message ''NO to Economy.'' Some days later the poster would be changed to a coloured one of smiling people with poetry tattooed on their bodies.
