Internal Conflict

“Internal Conflict” is an ongoing improvisational intra-institutional performance, manifesting as signs of internal conflict within a team. The aim is to give a random bystander, the public or media the impression of inner tensions and slight unprofessionalism within the team. This “performance” can be witnessed as seemingly accidental more or less obvious incidents, for example a quarrel, misunderstandings during a public announcement, general mood in the office etc. This performative condition and its potential consequences expose the tension between emotional labour and the constructed professional personality of the performer.
