Ulrike and Eamon Compliant (2009)
Ulrike and Eamon Compliant is a game that places each participant at the centre of a world of bank robbings, assassinations and betrayals.
Assume the role of Ulrike or Eamon and make a walk through the city while receiving phone calls. The project is based on real world events and is an explicit engagement with political questions. What are our obligations to act on our political beliefs? And what are the consequences of taking those actions?
