Marcus Matthias Keupp is back. While his provocative debut work, spam, sex & random thoughts, questions the madness of the art world, he now takes on our work culture in his usual satirical way. Keupp comments laconically on pictograms that we are familiar with from everyday working life and generates tongue-in-cheek warning notices and instructions for both employees and bosses. After the first smiles, Keupp, however, stimulates in-depth considerations regarding the sense and senselessness of our modern world of work.
