Russian Invasion 1968.
The secretary of the Norwegian Residence in Prague is exhausted. She notices that she has no more ink to work - and it turns out to be complicated to purchase new ink to write. She doesn‘t dare to incommode her boss and it‘s impossible to go downtown.
In that situation she types a letter on a mechanical typewriter
and throws it - folded as a paperplane - into the open window of
the Persian Embassy next door. With the request to throw
back a filled cartridge.
Object of exhibition is the
unfolded paperplane. A gentle fake of history.
