  • [DC-0208] the crossroads of techno-politics, PR, permanent political campaigning >…

  • it is better to travel ten thousand miles than to read ten thousand books

  • Someone who isn’t me (SWIM) distributes but does not produce the product (P) which is produced elsewhere (E). SWIM has a body (B). Was it Ann Jäderlund who said Unfold the leaves / thrust into the core. There is no core. Well then there is no core. Say B is in the water (W). See how P like a simile (S) both generates and defers meaning (M). Say W is fecund with M and its subordinate clauses each by each absorbed into P. See SWIM swim. SWIM sinks like a fat gold coin or floats like an oil spill. Current either way the currents. Excerpt from ‘SWIM‘, by @annelysegelman for the OFFSHORE ECONOMIST, currently showing at the 4th Istanbul Design Biennale

  • [DC-0165] Investigate offshore, they say. It will be a heaven to visit, they say (we're off next week)

  • [DC-0148] KO UK: the legal body that controls our offshore structure vanishes before its time to file paperwork. Its corpse is forever visible online at Companies House. KO UK is a tactic explained at p. 83 of the Offshore Investigation Vehicle (PDF)

  • [DC-0147] We spoke of a magic offshore coconut and a magic offshore company during this…

  • [DC-0134] Where has all the money gone?

  • The silent approach... Corporate Structure for Men is a pair of trunks that explores the set-up of an offshore vehicle controlled by the Demystification Committee. This set-up is abused when purchasing a pair of trunks, or any other item from the Offshore Spring/Summer 2018, a collection of beachwear sold through the vehicle.

  • [DC-0123] You deserve it

  • [DC-0121] The essence of the state is lost in the global system of tax havens. Cayman Islands could be submerged under the sea but remain the 4th largest financial hub.

  • [DC-0120] To treat companies as collections of business or as a single entity?


  • [DC-0118] The Paradise Papers reveal another list of establishment figures embroiled in the offshore system. The inevitable denials and resignations accompany suggestions that this practice is not the norm, that it is the fault of some bad actors. Offshore is not an alternative, dark or otherwise separate system: it is the global financial system. Offshore is as much a part of global finance as SWIFT transfers or Visa. To represent it as other, or distant, perpetuates the myth of separation that allows it to retain its power and, for the mainstream part of the financial system, leverage it while decrying it as out of their hands.
