Originally this limited edition “Poor museum has no money” was made for Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam as a teaser for her solo exhibition as a general comment on what public institutions have to be busy with when it comes to choices and politics. However, her sticker design was proposed to members of the board who found the text too sensitive for being published by a museum. After her proposal was rejected she came up with a very witty and brilliant sophisticated answer. She proposed to have an extremely large sticker made with the text: “Help, I am in a museum” that was hung at the entrance.
