A lovely multi-office
For a duration of 22 hours, the multi-office Hart Servis (otherwise spelled Heart Service) will be broadcasting live and will be open for participation somewhere in the city of Esch. From behind a counter, Jasmina will interact with passers-by as her different self-assigned professions: a walking scientist, a self entitled self entitlement office, a bites expert, an archivist of regrets, schnelle musikalische hilfe worker and, the most recently added to her palmares of services, watching bird watchers. Jasmina mentions these professions in her biography whenever she is asked to present herself. Even if overpromising to be lovely, Hart Servis encompasses all of these professions that eventually badmouth hierarchies and norms in language, identity and elsewhere. Although radio is the main medium where these services exist and for which they are created, Jasmina expands that space in the city. Heart Servis is her dream come true: a radio broadcasted multi-office that works for herself and other people so Jasmina finally has a workplace.
