Q was describing some performance art that happened on beach near Murcia, Spain, that he'd seen. He said a group of people in business suits carrying brief cases dive off a boat and wade onto the beach. They speak different languages, including German, English and Spanish. In a few days they will leave the same way, by wading into the water in the suits and leaving on a boat.

He said the work is about migration - that people will leave because of the all the poor African migrants in Spain. I said I think it is about migration too, but that it higlights the freedom of movement that people from rich countries - people who are rich - have compared with poor people, people with no choice. Rich people can come and go as they please. Poor people aren't allowed in.

He said it's a work that is open to interpretation, it has no text with it so I could understand it that way as well.
