fortunas favor. 2012. with Christoph Freidhöfer

Fortunas Favour - the CV generator - is a slot machine that is writing curriculum vitas. Out of a pool of statistic data and biographic narratives, life stories are generated, that could or could not happen like that. Name, gender, nationality and the economical starting postion is random. Not everybody has the same choices, some questions are asked rarely and who is not willing to use the recommeded bottoms will be ignored in the further official CV. The slot reflects on the randomness of privilegies, material security and structural power relations and interrogates common concepts, that success based in of performance and skills in a achievement-orientated society.
