"Mohnmanie" is a collaborative project with the austrian artist Manuela Picallo Gil that refers to an economy in which revenue has replaced ethical principles. Cueto and Picallo Gil question if following unethical procedures in order to reach that economical benefit is valid. This collaborative project does not question the nature of the poppy or the mass media, but an economic system that allows and encourages polarization, social hierarchies and unequal working conditions to keep a clear division between those who produce and consume the good and those who accumulate the profits. These thoughts are expressed through a publication, an installation, illustrations, a photographic work in public space and a participative action with poppy ice cream at NOTGALERIE, an artist run space by Reinhold Zisser in Vienna City.
