MIKROÖKONOMIE is part of Stephen's triptych of guerrilla performance art pieces entitled 'FRANKFURTWERK' comprising of NO ROAD, GEBROCHENGEL and MIKROÖKONOMIE.


Stephen comments on tourism and the reification of the economy through a social performance work MIKROÖKONOMIE (microeconomics). Stephen co-opts the tourist penchant for documentation but instead of a typical "tourist" pose, Stephen improvises a new vocabulary of stock poses reacting to the bull/bear. The work and poses manifest the "micro" in microeconomics - how the economy is defined be an elite few while every man on the street bears the brunt of those decisions in their everyday lives.
