No matter what statement artist Bossuet wants to make, free money is a nice reward for many passersby. “We get €12 or something and we’ll outsource to ‘Maccie’,” says one young man, laughing. “Free money is always good.” “12 euros in ten minutes, that’s great!”
Sometimes emotions ran high: “I had a five-dollar bill in my hand, I dropped it, and a girl immediately took it. That made me angry for a moment,” says one boy.
Bobby and Doc actually won: together they collected 28 euros.
Ezra and his father were also there this afternoon in Zaandam: “Look, we’ve registered five planes with content,” says his father excitedly. They left home well prepared today, and even brought a shrimp net with them, on Father’s advice.
The campaign was successful: after the distribution campaign, the exhibition was filled with people. Posset is happy that some of the artwork sold out immediately. “I discovered it a long time ago, it’s great. It’s going in the right direction, it’s become my thing!”
