"Zur Stärkung"
„To Strengthen“
Object, 2 parts, 2010

1 Edible Note
(printed, hand signed, in A 3 acrylic frame)
1 Consumer-Set
(40 x 40 wooden box with a removable acrylic glass             lid,59 printed and hand signed edible notes,                  scissors, white cotton gloves,instructions)

“To Strengthen” is the result of an announcement from the Baden-Wuerttemberg Ministry of Science, Research and Art for the exhibition “60 years of the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg”. It consists of an edible note in an acrylic glass frame, a consumption-set with 59 edible notes for visitors, with no evidence as to the effects on the consumer. The 59 notes for visitors to eat To Strengthen lie stacked in a wooden box. Putting on the gloves for hygienic reasons and cutting of the notes by the visitor gives the feeling of doing a ritual performance. By eating the notes, the aim of the Ministry is reached: the internalization of their intention by the visitors. The amount of consumption documents the demand for strengthening. The 60th edible note, the “Jubilee-Note”, should not be eaten, it remains whole.
