Bauštela

Bauštela is an installation appropriating everyday construction work environment on the streets of Vienna. The word itself is a Serbianized (Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian) version of a German word Baustelle  (eng. construction site), which not only depicts Serbian citizens working on construction jobs, but has as well become a symbol of work without papers abroad.
