Siempre haré lo que digo que haré

En la bienal de Venecia que pronto cerrará sus puertas hay una maravillosa y revolucionaria instalación de Adrian Piper. Es maravillosa y revolucionaria porque a mi modesto entender pretende cambiar el mundo, y cambiarlo a uno mejor.  A simple vista la instalación no llama mucho la atención. Hay tres mostradores tipo recepción de empresa grande. En la pared detrás de cada mostrador hay una frase en letras doradas: “Siempre haré lo que digo que haré”, “Siempre irá en serio lo que digo”, “Siempre seré demasiado car@ para ser comprad@”. En los mostradores, los visitantes pueden firmar un contrato en el que se comprometen a cumplir cada una de estas promesas. Elige uno, dos o tres. Comprométete. Cambiemos el mundo.
