Handwriting

by on June 13, 2013

Action performed on Bergen Bybane, Norway, for the opening of the exhibition Entry Denied, Exiles.

On the website Handwriting you will find an invitation and instruction to perform the act on a tram or subway close to you.

    I went on the website and here are the instructions on how to do this in English. Very simple and uncanny protest – really affecting.

    HANDWRITING
    Instruction for action on tram and subway.

    REJECTED

    PAPERLESS

    ILLEGAL

    Cover your face with the hands.

    Have a friend write the word REJECTED on them.

    Have the friend cover the face with the hands.

    Write the word PAPERLESS on them.

    Have a friend cover the face with the hands.

    Write the word ILLEGAL on them.

    Repeat

    Enter the same wagon on tram or subway. Choose to sit apart from each other.

    Cover the face with the hands.

    Hold the gesture in silence.

    Get off after two stops.

    Change wagon, take the next tram, or return back.

    Repeat
