These performances are intended as interventions in the workday of the employees of the museum. Every performer must be paid by the museum directly or indirectly, and execute the performance within their paid working hours. As such the performances give visibility to the hidden labor that takes place in the museum. Some of the performances are meant to take place in the gallery spaces, others are not. There can never be more than one performance per gallery space. The audience should discover the performances by chance, and not be invited for the event.
