The title of the exhibition is an appropriation of the text work of a young Czech artist David Fišer (TIMO). With the controversial ad slogan that promotes reduction instead of expansion the artists respond to the contemporary political and social issues at home as well as abroad. At the time, when a global market takes over in the whole Europe, from north to south, from east to west, the artist duo comes with its own slogan advertising a local diversity. Within the objects and installations their work deals with the complex relationships between periphery and centre, tradition and innovation, unlimited mobility in a global world and a local diversity that characterizes every nation in the project of a common Europe. At the time of a financial crisis, a Greek debt crisis and a growing nationalism, the project of a cosmopolitan solidarity is threatened.
