Close to the Karlsplatz metro station in Vienna a hidden speaker was installed. At that time, the voice of the announcer of stops in the metro was changing after decades from the old one to a new speaker. The old voice is a very familiar one for Viennese people. One very particular announcement said: „We ask you to leave your seats to elderly or disabled passengers as well as to persons with children.“
The artist removed the purpose of the statement, and just left the appeal for viewers to interpret their duty. The speaker repetitively announced: „We ask you to“
