During six months, Secret Powers for Identity, Security and Self-Respect in Troubling Times activities consisted of two different ‘chapters’:

One was the establishment of a fully furnished temporary  Office (The Ultimate Flexible Work Station)  that was potentially used by anyone who needed an urgent place to work. The luxurious office, located in the space of The Eye offered a multifunctional business centre right in the heart of the Van Abbemuseumfor the ideal mix (depending on who participated) of commercial, industrial and cultural interests.

 The second chapter consisted of a series of performance; P  for Performance; coordinated by me in which I invite a varietyofartists to conceive a programmeof events each month. These structures of events draw its inspiration from the informal domestic structure of home-sale Tupperware-like parties, which my mother frequently organises; she also actively participated in some of these events. The model of the domestic networking parties can be seen as a modern instrument for the constant improvement of life. These meetings have led me to an investigation of the performativerole of the object, the mediator and membership of the constituent social group who attend.
