The Map, embroidery on towel, 2017. Private collection

An impenetrable wall of institutionality has the passages inside: “institutions are people.” Axel Heil figured it out as a response to the idea of using the Karlsruhe municipal cultural system as an artistic medium. “Ok, let us see,”: thought Marika and Anton, and soon a plan of intervention in the ZKM museum ripened. Have taken a detailed instruction from friend Joachim who drew a diagram that outlined the ways of financing art projects and a scheme of the cultural department officials distributing money for art projects, M&A reckoned with his advice, and the diagram became the subject of a picture that Marika embroidered on a towel; the towel was given by Joachim when artists first arrived in Karlsruhe.
