Stefanie Schroeder participated in a program for business optimization in an effort to speed up the process of becoming a self-employed artist and to end her dependence on state funding. The employment office determines whether they will grant self-employment status based on the development projection calculation submitted in this process. Stefanie Schroeder’s proposal to make a film documentation of the process was denied. She transformed recordings of conversations, handouts, and correspondence into a script of her “project on the artistic business personality,” parts of which were filmed before the script was completed. The role models of artist, entrepreneur, and welfare recipient—all played by Stefanie Schroeder—meet in the script scenario.
