HAVE A SEAT, LIKE URSULA STENZEL / NEHMEN SIE PLATZ, WIE URSULA STENZEL
in the end of june 2012, Ursula Stenzel, the major of viennas 1st district (also living) was responsible for a law which prohibits the work of street artists at the stephansplatz and graben, the main tourist places in the center of vienna. beside a time limit and a complete blockade for different genres (breakdance, musicperformance), other places outside the city center were offered which appeared to be impossible to utilise. some of these artists left vienna. I go to the stephans place, prepared with a chair which, I imagine, could stand in Ursula Stenzels dining room. on the top is written: HAVE A SEAT LIKE URSULA STENZEL / NEHMEN SIE PLATZ WIE URSULA STENZEL. I place the chair exactly where artists used to show theire performances for tourists. I invit people to have a seat - "take" the place of the artists, which Ursula Stenzel "took". the chair starts to get used by different people. after one hour, I go home, leave the chair alone.
