The installation *UNorJUSTNESS | Case A : Finance* has 3 parts, which are
brought in opposition to each other, visually and acustically. There are
shown three forms of work, of earning money, of „making“ money:*1 –
Worker* (Palm
Oil Plantation, Indonesia)
*2 – Trader* (Commodities Trading, Switzerland)
*3 – Investor* (CopyTrader Promotion, worldwide)All three forms seem to be
independent but are connected in the globalized world: the worker in
Indonesia produces palm oil, which is traded by commodities traders in
Switzerland (Switzerland is the main platform worldwide for global
commodities trading) which get financing by private investors all over the
world. The three videos show in a documentary, pure style three ways of
earning money: *physical work*, *non-physical work *and *no work - *the
promise of making money without any effort for small investors by so-called

Comparing the three sides the question appears: What is the right wage for
which work ? What is commensurability in the economic world ?
Part 1 and 2 are confronted directly by projections hanging vis-a-vis,
visible from both sides, building a space in between, where the third part
can be seen on a little monitor. The two hanging plexiglass panes are
vibrating by transducers, which make the plates to special loudspeakers,
producing an extraordinary acoustic space. Visually the two different
worlds of working are separated. Acoustically the sounds of the worker and
the trader mix in one space. The third part can be seen and heard by only
one visitor who has to go in between the two worlds of working atmospheres.
There he is confronted with a promotion to invest his money in the most
easy way, which is based on the work of the others.
