Hunger King in Budapest Jani Leinonen

When Jani Leinonen was invited to Budapest to create an art project he decided to channel most of his project budget to homeless people. His project got a donation from a Finnish media and activism project called Docventures. Other than free money of 3400 Hungarian forint served in the hamburger box, Jani Leinonen opened a fake takeaway shop with a similar design to Burger King on Wednesday in Budapest. Project aims to raise awareness about poverty in Hungary. The money given is the equivalent of the daily portion of the official minimal wage in Hungary) to poor people willing to stand in queue for hours next to the red carpet offered for rich people in front of the shop. See what a creative idea!
