Fischli & Weiss: How to Work Better (1991) 

Painted on the wall of an office building, the artists play with the motivational sayings and strategies of the huge corporations that rule our lives and work. The obvious irony and banal treatment here helps to make a break with the corporate and reclaim the language of ordinary common sense. Banner image: "Modern Times" courtesy of Alex Eylar, Flickr
