In the context of the ongoing exhibition The Seduction of the Bureaucrat, Office for Joint Administrative Intelligence will give a presentation titled "Procedural Audit 1", aiming to reappraise the maligned organisational phenomenon of bureaucratic red tape. Red tape is characterised by excessive administrative procedures and adherence to official rules and protocols, which can often be perceived as frustrating, disempowering and even perverse. During the performance, O.J.A.I. will enact various methods and techniques that transfigure bureaucratic processes into being tools for reification, self-actualization, and magic. Procedural Audit 1 incorporates music, storytelling, form filling, sonic artefacts and the legendary O.J.A.I. staff tombola game complete with exciting prizes.
