La galerie de la Biennale

The Green Card – that open sesame to living and working in the United States – is distributed via a free annual lottery organised on the Internet by the American government. The Société Réaliste ("Realistic Society") project mounts a challenge to this system by suggesting to Americans that they should reverse the immigration flow by demanding a green card that lets them flee towards Europe. The moment it was created, Société Réaliste’s website was swamped by demands from Third World candidates who had not realised it was a fake. The installation at the Biennale lets visitors take the point of view of the immigration officer – hundreds of portraits of candidates for the European Green Card are on display, with personal information – while making their own applications and printing their personalised Green Cards.
