Internal Conflict


A work by Krõõt Juurak

Internal Conflict” is an ongoing improvisational intra-institutional performance, manifesting as signs of internal conflict within a team. The aim is to give a random bystander, the public or media the impression of inner tensions and slight unprofessionalism within the team. This “performance” can be witnessed as seemingly accidental more or less obvious incidents, for example a quarrel, misunderstandings during a pubic announcement, general mood in the office etc.
