Art action – daily services (Angélica Chio / María Linares) – Public and private spaces in Berlin, Hamburg and Nuremberg – 1999-2001
Shoeshine service action using an unconventional shoeshine chair. The shoes are photographed before and after the service. While daily services shines the shoes, the customer is invited to fill out a questionaire, which asks for gneral information about shoe shining as well as comments and suggestions for improvements. In response to the customers’ suggestions, daily services introduced refreshments, applied band-aids during the sommer, and also started offering the service in the workplace.
