Together and in recurring discussion and trial rounds, the artists, guests and the public of the think tank series Salon Volkertmarkt explored questions like what the artist is looking for; where the artist is in society today and what roles she/he is aiming for.

From these, the so-called Kuchenmodell [Cake Model], the implementation of which needed to be decided by consensus every time again among those present at the respective salon, developed into the recurring main scene of all think tanks. In allusion to the fact that the vast majority of art events beyond those located in commercial art production and highbrow are lacking in audience, and in a participative-collaborative approach, the bureaucratically dealt with and protocoled performance Das Kuchenmodell provided for a payment in equal parts of the average amount available for each of the five afternoons that always extended into the evening – out of a total funding amount of 500 Euro [thus 100 Euro for each think tank] – to the contributors to the respective think tank as expense fee for the content-related contributions. Depending on the number of people present, everyone received between approx. 5 to 12 Euro. The respective amount was calculated to two decimal places, the latter paid in cents.
