Turbo is a powerful installation that addressed the phenomena of testosterone and superficial superiority. Created by Baptiste Debombourg, the installation took place in the years of 2007, 2008, and 2009, but its impact has lasted well beyond its years.

To advance, the people from Eastern Europe put some more «tuning, customizing» everywhere – for example in their folk music.”
