    I prepared an election campaign performance which actualized a hypothetical situation where a migrant worker holding a Korean citizenship, participates in Korean politics.

    A campaign truck decorated with placards of Kim Titon, a Bangladesh migrant worker, as its candidate, drove throughout the city of Anyang. Stump speakers on the truck solicited citizens for votes though loudspeakers and distributed election handouts, exactly like the real election campaign tour.

    Listening to canvassing voices from loudspeakers and reading the election handouts, citizens of Anyang expressed rather generous opinions toward migrant workers in Korea. Several of them even misunderstood the campaign as one for the coming by-elections and studied carefully the pledges on the handouts. Some opinioned that they would vote for a migrant worker politician in the future.
