To speed up the process of becoming an independent self-employed artist and to end her dependence on Hartz 4 unemployment state benefit, Stephanie Schroeder had to participate in a program of business optimization. Her proposal to make a film documentation of the process was denied. She transformed recordings of conversations, handouts, and correspondence into a scenario about her “project on the artistic business personality,” in which the role of artist, entrepreneur and welfare recipient, all represented by herself, confront and collide.
