Competition 3
Business as Usual

This programme is devoted to everyday life, the usual, the ordinary. Our perception of everyday life is highly ambivalent though. It’s not something that’s self-evident but must be questioned, and can be shaped and changed. That’s why we constantly have to ask ourselves, what our everyday is, what it could be and how it shouldn’t be.
