2013.

Through the work “No content/Artist on strike”, a possibility of depriving the spectator of the content of an artistic work is being considered. When the worker goes on strike, production stops, and we’re deprived of a certain product. In this case, the artist takes the method of the worker on strike – blowing a whistle, but in completely different, cultural context. Will anyone notice when the artist stops producing the artworks? Can the artist deprive someone of something if the content goes missing, or always and only himself?
