Two loudspeakers were mounted on the building outside the gallery and five times a day the Muslim prayer call was played: calling to prayer in two opposite directions, towards Lars Hillesgate and Christiesgate in the centre of Bergen. The 125 different playing hours were played exactly following the Muslim prayer calendar for Bergen during the period of the exhibition.

The galleries ordinary exhibition arena: five windows towards the street, were barricaded with wooden plates. They were free to use by anyone who wished to express them selves with posters, graffiti, tags etc. – as The Commune of Bergen had prohibited posters and announcements on all city buildings.
