Project Petition is a reaction on perennial personal and general discontent with inadequate, or to be more precise (non)existent law about sponsorship in culture. It represents an attempt to sensitize the profession and the public and take real action in that direction.

By the presence on this traditional exhibition, „Petition" as conceptual, engaged and interactive work pointed to one of the key problems of our cultural environment. The project was designed as a beginning of an action that would expand through more galleries, museum and the rest of the institutions in culture, and by doing so turn into sort of a „collective performance".
