Visitors to the gallery are each given a card bearing the words Safety Measures on one side and a simple instruction written in both English and German on the reverse.
Smile at Everyone, Keep to the Edges, Drink Lots of Water, Carry A Weapon, Act Dumb.
The instructions which make up Safety Measures suggest modes, behaviours, tactics and systems for avoiding danger – some practical and common-sense; others mythical or bordering on desperate. Each instruction serves as a frame through which to view and encounter the world while at the same time playfully inviting the museum visitors to alter their behaviour once they leave the museum.
Safety Measures was made for Protections, Kunsthaus Graz.
