’Flere sider af samme sag’ blev i 2009/10 forflyttet til en midlertidig lysavis opsat på ’reklamefacaden’ i Århus Midtby – for at give midtbyens borgere og besøgende mulighed for at læse de ’alternative’ ’headlineres’ og se tekster fra og om tiltag i Gellerup, en bydel som ofte betragtes som et isoleret og udskældt boligområde, hvor ’man’ ikke har noget at gøre. (Indgik i udstillingen Direkte Demokrati i forb. m. Kommunalvalget 2009)

IN 2009 /10 the content from the text display was temporarily displaced in the city centre od Aarhus. Passersby and citezens living in the center were given the oppotunity to read the alternative headliners and being updated about events going on in Gellerup - a neigbourhood which often in the public general opion is regarded as a no-go-area
