In spring 2007 Antje Schiffers and Thomas Sprenger bartered with 5 farmers in Austria, the outcome was shown as part of the exhibition Grosses Bauern-Theater in the Vienna Secession.

On invitation by Wapke Feenstra they worked with three farmers' families in Hardenberg in the dutch province of Overijssel in August. Here the project was part of Wapke's De Beste Plek. The paintings and videos were shown at KNSTSPR in Hardenberg where the book De Beste Plek by Wapke was first presented to the public.
