22.01.2019 BIANCOSHOCK GAVE HARMEN DE HOOP AN ASSIGNMENT: MAKE A WORK ABOUT A JOB-SEEKER.
HARMEN DE HOOP: SEASONAL WORK - TWANNBERG, 2019 Seasonal employment is very common at farms. Because farms are busier at certain times of the year, many hire workers to work during a specific season, for example during the harvest time. Harmen de Hoop is applying for a winter job.
14.01.2019 HARMEN DE HOOP GAVE BIANCOSHOCK AN ASSIGNMENT: MAKE A WORK ABOUT BLACK AND WHITE.
BIANCOSHOCK: SGOMBERO - MILAN, 2019 Biancoshock collected more than 150 pcs of the same flyer which invites people to call the phone number for low-cost removals ( 'sgombero' means 'cleaning out' ). In recent years this type of announcement multiplied due to the italian crisis. After removing the leaflets the artist re-fixed them to a wall composing the phone number printed on the flyers. The intervention emphasizes the urgent need for an immediate job.

06.12.2018 HARMEN DE HOOP GAVE BIANCOSHOCK AN ASSIGNMENT: MAKE A WORK IN A SMALL VILLAGE.
BIANCOSHOCK: ONTHEGROUND - MACCASTORNA, 2018 Biancoshock visited Maccastorna (with its 73 inhabitants is the 11° smallest village in Italy) and he reproduced the iconic Subway M1 using some hay bales found in an agricultural field. The intervention ironically emphasized the difference between the limitations typical of the country life and the stress of living in a wide metropolis.
