roundtable

In December 2016 the Demystification Committee held an Offshore Roundtable, a day of discussion focusing on the technical and geopolitical structures bound up in modern movements of capital within tax havens.

A group of designers and artists was invited to join and asked to cognitively map the world of “offshore” through a number of collective exercises. Participants were further presented with some of the tools and technologies used to gain access to the records of companies registered in a number of tax havens.

The roundtable was held in a meeting room in London’s Greenwich Peninsula, owned by Knight Dragon, a company privately controlled by billionaire Henry Cheng Kar-Shun through his New World Development conglomerate in Hong Kong. The meeting room allowed gazing over Canary Wharf while discussing leaked company records mentioning the involvement of banks headquartered there.
