Thinking about what it means to be a foreigner and the status that comes with it, perception from outside as well as from within describes someone who belongs to a country that is not her/his own, alien, different and unknown, a person from outside one's community, one who is a stranger. All these meanings are naturally raising questions about territories, borders, national or self-identification, the notion of home, and many other layers behind it. This work was triggered by the notion of belonging and consists of the gesture of labeling a T-shirt with the word FOREIGNER, which on the one hand is provocative because it's putting the person who wears it in an ironically random prejudiced (supremacist) focus of another person, while on the other hand by widely distributing T-shirt with this word into a pop-cultural surface and openly addressing this topic, it pulls the meaning of the word from the shady subsurface-existence to be displaced and deconstruct it in the public discourse.
Let's all become foreigners so nobody is!
