Bernadette La Hengst and her choir celebrate a realistic utopia: on the occasion of the five year anniversary of the implementation of the basic income guarantee they all take stock of how their living situations have changed – the only condition they have agreed to, is singing together. The choir, which is made up of unemployed people, workaholics, cleaning personnel and managers, is a thrilling society, which disco-usses the basic income issue from varying perspectives. The successful project is back again in Berlin!
