An incognito appointment within supermarket aisles with an expert smoked salmon shoplifter.

When Mxxxxxxx goes shopping, he stages a personal version of proletarian expropriation. Besides bread and water, he sometimes allows himself some luxury food, mainly smoked salmon (or alternatively extra-fine chocolate). However, the salmon never passes through the hands of the cashier.

We offer an individual lesson to learn the tricks of the trade: locating any CCTV cameras, acting ease, eluding the cashier's suspicion, pretending indignation if checked, covering up if discovered.

A reflection - through transgression - upon an idea of legality that implies social inequalities (including dietary ones)

An Individual lesson of 15', place and time will be indicated by Mxxxxxxx.

Edition of 10.

Price: you keep the salmon; Mxxxxxxx keeps the rest of the shopping (€30 worth of goods).
