AINSTBULT stands for “Art Is Not Supposed To Be Used Like This”, which means “art is not intended to be used in this way”. The artist thus refers to his understanding of art and at the same time questions the status quo of a supposedly generally valid understanding of art. His temporarily visible piece on the back of the Transurban container was publicly created by the artist for the opening of the first location of the city tour in front of the Montez family art association in Frankfurt am Main. According to the artist, the purpose of the self-referential speech act is to question the usefulness of art: “If art is not art above art and does not criticize itself by itself, then it could be that it is explicitly politically motivated art.
