Ensayo_02. Ocupar la totalidad del espacio, en un día no laborable, superando el aforo máximo cifrado por la Licencia Municipal de Funcionamiento
During a five-minute period, 59 bodies occupy a space, exceeding the maximum authorised capacity of 32 persons, on 7 January 2007.
This action is based on the regulations that specify the maximum capacity of a bar, subverting it by occupying the space in a non-standard way. A few days before the action, a script is handed out in the neighbourhood. It describes the steps to be used for entering, occupying and leaving, but does not specify the duration of each stage.
