MISS H - EU ARTIST
The work produced focuses on bringing current contemporary issues and policies under the spotlight. Through this, the absurdity of current legislation and the modern day mechanisms of power, control and politics are highlighted.
The work is a comment on society that encourages and promotes dialogue and action.

To get this tax abolished, all 28 EU member states must agree. Why hasn’t this happened? Another example of us being treated like T**TS.
The have’s (money and/or a penis) and have not’s are divided once more.
