„Diakritikon“ criticises the institutionalised exclusion of diacritical marks in identification documents of first and last names, throughout different nations. Based on the Latin alphabet, many marks that might not be embedded in a language like the Turkish „ç“ in English for instance are plainly substituted by the closest letter in the alphabet, in this case a „c“. This circumstance not only changes the writing and spelling of a name but also implies and creates a form of othering. Through these legislations immediate national institutionalised discrimination is effect. „Diakritikon“ consists of an edition of 2.000 letrasets containing diacritical marks that can be rubbed into identification documents like passports or I-D‘s in order to temporary correct ones deliberately misspelled name.
