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.

13.10.2018 HARMEN DE HOOP GAVE BIANCOSHOCK AN ASSIGNMENT: MAKE A WORK ABOUT WINNERS.
BIANCOSHOCK: GOOD LACK - SOFIA, 2018 Action at the International Airport of Sofia, capital of the most needy country in Europe. Gambling today represents 3% of GDP and gambling addiction mainly afflicts the poorest segment of the population such as the unemployed, illiterates and old people. The artist instead of donating money to the Red Cross offers a 'Scratch and Win' ticket. The simple gesture mirrors the behavior of the state: the Bulgarian Government has applied a tax break for gambling companies and it invites people to 'Try your luck' to overcome the poverty instead of investing funds in social security, health and education.

BIANCOSHOCK: DAILY BOMBINGS - LODI, 2018 The failed factory, closed in 2006, looks like a place that has just been bombed by an air-raid: the roof is collapsed and only rubble and debris remain on the ground.
