A big wreath (diameter 160cm) is formed from branches and trees and placed hanging angular in the exhibition space. Ribbons in different colours are radiating over a length of 20m into the space. The ends of the ribbons which are hanging of the wreath are marked as colours of protest in the so-called Colour or Corporate Revolutions
(Orange Revolution / Ukraine, Green Revolution / Iran etc.) The coloured ribbons that the protesters were wearing on the street in the different protests seem to become propaganda elements in a wreath ceremony.
