在〈國際自殺大賽〉中,我虛構了一個「自殺技術基金會」,而展覽空間則變成他們辦理「國際自殺大賽」決選會議的會議室。在展間右側牆上,可以看到「國際自殺大賽」的簡章,整個賽事進行方式是這樣:全世界不分國籍皆可提出計畫參賽,但這些自殺計畫有個基本要求,那就是該自殺行動的目的不是為了個人逃離苦海,而是為了集體的未來,也就是說,這些自殺都是有目標、有立場、對生命的使用有積極想像的。提案人們從歷史上找了一些參照對象,檢討之後擬出他們自己的自殺計畫,三件進入決選的提案分別為:一、以自殺作為手段的 自殺者,二、以他殺作為手段的自殺者,三、社會主義烏托邦瓦解下的生命處境。

In International Suicide Award, I fabricated an institution "Suicide Technique Foundation" and turned the exhibiting room into a meeting room for final selection of International Suicide Award. The regulation is as follows: everyone around the world is welcomed to participate individually or as a group. But the aim of this award is at the promotion of putting a value on facing and changing the world via individual efforts. It is not applicable for those who perform suicide for the sake of escaping from the world. With the competition prospectus displayed on the wall, proposals and documents from the competition’s participants placed on three office desks are categorized as below: 1. Proposal executing suicide by way of suicide; 2. Proposal executing suicide by way of homicide and 3. Life condition after the collapse of utopian socialism.
