My Calling (Card) #1 #2 #3 (1986-1990; 2012), by Adrian Piper (born in 1948), is a series of prints in the form of calling cards and performances designed by the artist so as to confront her counterparts with their sexist and racist actions within different relational and social contexts: a dinner, a party, a bar…

          Similar to other conceptual, performative, relational and communicational art works by Adrian Piper, that are not afraid to expose dissensus and even conflict in order to move past them, the “calling cards” are part of the artists approach to identity and the responsibility of those who, in the face of this identity, consciously or unconsciously reproduce the mechanisms of discrimination and oppression.
