HUNGER KING, BUDAPEST 11.6 – 6.7.2014
Jani Leinonen has opened a fake fast food restaurant called Hunger King in Budapest, Hungary to highlight how the Hungarian government deals with homeless and poor people.
Hunger King gives out burger boxes full of money for homeless people during 3 weeks and fools around with the anti – homeless legislation.
The burger boxes contain 3400 forints, the exact sum of Hungarian state’s minimum wage per day. For its wealthy customers Hunger King offers a red carpet fast lane and art pieces for sale.
Leinonen says he wants to show the stark difference between rich and poor in Hungary but that most cities around the world have similar issues.
