Multiple Choice

24 meat trays, vinyl lettering
dimensions variable

The content on the trays is drawn from submittable forms when applying for a job. There is one main draft that has been established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) which requests an applicant to provide information on their race, ethnicity, sex, gender, religion and disability. The interpretation of EEOC’s sample varies greatly among employers. I began collecting these online documents in form of screenshots in 2017. Coming from Europe, many questions surfaced in my mind with regard to the foundation myth of the US and these classifications that have their roots in European concepts of race and nationality. The work Multiple Choice, is a response to systemic racism. The question I asked myself is why does a society, built on the notion of freedom and equality, need systemic separation and classification? The intentions might be right for such procedures, however, could they reinforce on a subconscious level what we are trying to fight against?
