The Piece Concerning the Question of Purposefulness

To our horror we realised that behind every private project a much bigger project is hidden. A project that is so private it could be called a secret, and which follows a strange unknown order.
In The Piece Concerning the Question of Purposefulness, the project-makers trace, in a wild odyssey, the connections between project-making and Europe’s neoliberal austerity policies. They raise the question whether art and economics are ends-in-themselves, or whether they should serve another purpose. Parodying Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, they ask: how do we actually get out of this mess?
