They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act

Equal rights – for whom?

The headstand project is a personal, independent action dedicated to different topics, persons and locations that I find interesting or provocative due to the Human Rights article nr. 1.   

A headstand is a vulnerable position. It is an opposite, non threatening but powerful position. I find this position suitable to demonstrate that I disagree, and that I want change. The headstand is a way of expressing my frustration.  An invitation to take the opposite view.

These people and happenings have been headstanded so far, in order of appearance:

  1. The mayor of Moscow, Jurij Luzjkov
  2. The leader of the FRP party, Siv Jensen
  3. The royal wedding, Sweden
  4. Fritt Ord and Harald Eia (in norwegian)
  5. The Norwegian Asylum politics and the  Police (in norwegian)
  6. Harald Eia and Co
  7. The Israeli Occupation
  8. The Kapittel Festival 2013
  9. Prior and Ultra
  10. Statens Vegvesen – Stopp og sov
