“Broad Sense” is based on an intervention in the European Parliament in Brussels. First the same question about dress code in European Parliament was sent via e-mail to the local EP information office of each member state. Then the varying responses were printed on 19 T-shirts that the artist wore inside the Parliament over the course of three days. The video reveals the diversity of security responses to her visits.


Broad Sense was awarded the first prize of Prix de Rome Visual Arts 2011 (NL)
