Human Needs, RM Basics theme for 2016, provided a framework to look at art undressed in a sauna, self-reflectively on a public toilet, pious in a church, hungry in restaurant, drunk in a bar, exposed in the anonymity of a random public that comes and goes. All the projects demonstrate that the incidence of art in the public sphere appears as an unfinished act, dependent on its receptio, documentation and hashtagging.
