Durch die Kommunikation mit Kunst und Performance und den Ordnungshütern, wurden neue Realitäten geschaffen um mit Obdachlosigkeit umzugehen und zwischen den Welten zu vermitteln.
THE SIMPLE HOUSES
By Building Houses in public spaces for minorized groups, questions about social fairness and the right of living shall be raised. The communication via art and performance with the officials was creating new realities to deal with homelessness and to mediate between the worlds.

es entsteht eine selbsterwählte Staatlichkeit, eine Sozialisierung der Dinge durch eine gleichwertige Kommunikationsebene durch Kunst, Performance, Klang und Gleichberechtigung der Sprachlichkeit.
Via an Art Squat it is tried to realize the rights of freedom
the perception alone in which you see a house being built on the street, a communication which is relinquishing everyday-language, with the code of sculptural things, of performance of sound and language, making a level of equal things, equality through language.

Chemical processes, biological organisms, systems of general economy as well as societies of people working together all have a tendency while expending energy to grow and thrive to create a surplus of material often seen as waste. The surplus produced by these systems is used up in a variety of ways, most commonly either for catastrophic acts such as war or acts of decadence and spectacle in the field of artistic endeavour.

Sparked by the financial crisis of 2007-08 the concepts of debt and guilt have attracted a growing public and academic interest. Yet in spite of an ongoing interdisciplinary interest in political economy, debt and guilt are rarely studied in correlation to each other. How do these concepts relate? Does monetary debt have to be repaid on moral grounds? Does the debt of entire states have the same moral status as private debt? And most importantly, what about questions of debt relief? What are potential perspectives for change in an ongoing time of crisis, social inequality and climate change?
