This is a specially produced version of Meriç Algun Ringborg's work, Billboards, for Ibraaz Platform 008.
Billboards presents a selection of questions found in visa application forms. Lifted from their usual context of visa applications and distilled as banners and billboards, these questions take on an absurd, almost humorous tone while retaining the seriousness of their original intention; the administration, control and categorization of personhood. These are questions which citizens of a state are never aware of, yet which reveal the extent of their governments desire to know, and the extent to which administrations are willing to blur the line between privacy and the state's right to information.
