Pauperfontein

critical dissent from and for the community

“Cultural Capital? Community? We’ll show you community!”, thought theatre group The Paupers. They made a fountain composed of penises, and at the very heart, a public toilet. Whenever the toilet is used, the fountain sprays. Everyone can literally contribute to this work of art.

Peeing is, after all, a universal necessity! No matter what you look like, what language you speak, whether you’re male or female: we all do it. In 2018, you have the honour of peeing in the most special of places: the Pauperfontein, commonly called the Penis or Cock fountain. With a healthy dose of imagination, playfulness and especially humour, The Paupers showcase their fountain along cities and villages across Friesland in 2018. And where locations allow, extended with theatre piece Dy lul fan mij.

Peeing is, after all, a universal necessity! No matter what you look like, what language you speak, whether you’re male or female: we all do it.

And where locations allow, extended with theatre piece Dy lul fan mij.

Crowdfunding

To pay for the fountain and to show that this really is carried by the community, The Paupers organised a crowdfunding initiative. Donors were promised a personalised ‘member’ on the fountain. The target funding was achieved quickly and we are now working hard on the penises that together will form the fountain. Which locations the travelling fountain will visit will be announced towards the end of 2017.
