Noble task was a performance about my role, as a highly educated migrant in the international cultural system. I was elegantly-dressed, held a fancy handbag and had an ironing board under my arm. After installing the board, I took an iron and a flag out of my bag. I tried to iron the wrinkled flag with my unplugged iron. Failing to do so, I packed everything together and I left the stage. This performance was my farewell to the Hungarian Institute in Istanbul, where I had worked as a cultural diplomat. I staged the same performance at several festivals in Switzerland. I also ironed the Swiss flag within the scope of an international program in London.
