Some Things Better Change – Our Polite Society & Paulien Barbas @ HBKsaar Gallery, Saarbrücken, Germany [2011];

“… we made a work emphasizing the problem of presenting graphic design work in the context of a gallery. In such a setting the work loses its functionality and to a certain extent represents itself: when the work is hung on the wall in order to be ‘viewed’ and not to be ‘used’ it turns into a representation of an idea rather than a functional object.”
