I acquired a new ball at the same shop.

Took it to Top Kino cafe.


K mentioned originality and authenticity.



Talked about migrants and integration;
peripheric countries and "universal values".

Europass, replique, Pakistan.

Sevi analysed the ball, looking for it's special feature as art. Then he asked if he could buy it.

It costs 1,000 euro. I suggested he tried something cheaper at Intersport.

“So” he said, “if I play football then I’m also part of an artwork".

We talked from soccer to identity, to elections, to cultural studies based on football style.
Later, the ball was misappropiated by two guys.

Yppenplatz, Ottakring
 

In Ottakring, some people watching the Turkey-Croatia game jumped when when the final score was set, and floaded the streets with crowds and noise, fireworks, smoke, music, dancing and horns. Car transit was banned in the area, and hundreds of people were out on the road.

By linking art to my everyday life I’m making the “art” part dilute: it's less about sovereign aesthetic decisions and more about chance.

Took the ball to an integration place, where I had an appointment with a cultural anthropologist, about an exhibition with migrant artists. Together, we went through a huge, classy viennese salon, into a smaller, not-so-taken-care-of back room with a meeting table in the center, and older curtains covering a line of plain rectangular windows. “This is where the exhibition is going to be” she said. She's nice and intelligent, and she's probably working with nice people too, but sometimes it seems the "migrant" word has a bit more weight than you're assuming yourself.
