2013, Performance ACT Festival, Zürich, Switzerland



In collaboration with Mexican artist Claudia Baena we found an itinerant Time Bank in the form of an association entitled: “Verein Doing by not Doing”, which worked as follow: dividing a crowded sidewalk into two lanes; “With Time” and “Without Time” we approached pedestrians and asked them: Do you have some minutes? Those that had time where invited to donate them and those that needed extra minutes where invited to receive them by simply sitting at a public bench quietly and without doing much. After donating or receiving minutes each participant became a member of the association and signed and received a certificate. Over a period of 6 months in different cities of Switzerland we accumulated 240 donated minutes and gave away 172.
