According to the artist; The idleness save the world, everything will begin one day by not going to work.
In ancient Athena, working was attributed only to the slaves. As for today, the monopolies who direct world politics and economy, do not eschew from provoking war for their own interests, and make people ill and then dooms to medicine have created their own modern slaves of consumption with their so-called aims of development, growth and welfare society.
Gonul Nuhoglu catches people with her exhibition titled as “Idleness shall save the world, it will all start one day by not going to work”, at the Sirkeci Station where they rush to go work. She calls us to halt for a while and question. Are we aware of the truth behind the reality? Should we work this much, if we would live in a more humane, natural and just world, instead of consumpting constantly.
