In order to bring institutional racisms
(in the form of state regulated racisms) into the focus of public attention,
a 3 x 3 x 3 m large poster object was placed in the Viennese city center
in front of the State Opera from 14.10. - 27.11.1997. As this site is visited
by numerous tourists, the poster object showed a sober text, superimposed
over a photographed house facade, about the Austrian practice of remand
pending deportation in German, English, and Italian.
The fourth side of the poster object informed
in more detail (also in three languages) about the practice of remand pending
deportation in this country under the headline "Facts worth knowing about
Austria". The poster object was part of the project "Institutional Racisms"
(Institutionelle Rassismen), which was continued as an exhibition in the
There a video with leading officials from
Austria and Germany, who we interviewed on remand pending deportation and
other exclusion mechanisms, and information materials from anti-racist
publications were shown.
