The Act of Doing Nothing

Idleness is often viewed negatively in a society shaped by the values of market capitalism and the pressures of productivity. This project seeks to challenge these assumptions and explore the meaning of "doing nothing" through various approaches. By examining our own experiences with inaction, we aim to shift the perception of this concept and assert the right to leisure for all.

Through this exploration, questions such as "What does it mean to do nothing?", "Who has the right to do nothing?", and "How can we claim this right for ourselves and others?" were part of the focus around the city.
