Exhibitions

2009
Imaginary friends die here
Gymnasium 136, 2nd floor.

In 8th grade, I made a cardboard plate saying "Imaginary friends die here". It was placed above the door to the psychologist's office.

The exhibition by the anonymous artist was a great success. The social dilemma question remains open. A piece of art was dismantled by one of headteachers the same day. The further story of the item remains unknown.

Medium: cardboard, marker, double-sided tape
