132—134.  Site-specific project, undertaken in collaboration with artists Helene Siebermayr and Gerda Nieves Martinez-Lopez, in Linz, Austria, 2009.

 

The installation was sited in rooms 132—134 of the former Finanzgebäude (Inland Revenue building), which was uninhabited and in a transitional phase at the time of exhibition. The project investigated the building’s history—its physical traces, its implication as a financial institution at the time of the GFC, as well as the philosophical and sociological significations of government institutions as dispositifs of power. These three areas of investigation converge in the physical space of the three joint rooms of 132—134.
