Patriotism on/off

Patriotism on/off
Klagenfurt/Austria, 2017
Two arms holding a plate: one side is white, the other side is red-white-red (austrian flag)
The object can be controlled by a lever mounted on the handrail.
Patriots can fasten the lever to raise the arms (and the flag). Non Patriots can lower it
by releasing the lever.
The installation gives both groups a satisfying feeling of expressing their political conviction.
