Every year the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK) and Stroom Den Haag organize a project week under the title On Responsibility. This year's objective was to answer the question "How do you bring an iceberg to court?" The week was organized in collaboration with Susan Schuppli and part of the program See You in The Hague. This mini-exhibition was the award-winning entry of a group of graphic design students (from all four years) who discussed the insignificance of a signature.

How can a simple thing like a scribble signify so much and so little at the same time? In our current environment, a signature is essential in order to be officially recognized. But just as an identity, a signature is an uncertain entity, although the person connected to it is certain.
