«Laborers who cannot be payed, remunerated to remain in the interior of carton boxes»
This work is an adaptation of the ones executed in Guatemala and New York, where laborers were introduced into carton boxes under different circumstances. In this case, six workers remained four hours daily for six weeks inside the boxes, having to collect their salaries in secret because of their condition as political exiles. German legislation gives an exiled person 80 marcs, about 40 USD. a month, and prohibits that he or she work under the threat of returning them to their country of origin. Therefore, the details of this piece could not be made public at the time. The refugees came from Chechenia.
