The “Offshore Tour Operator” is a psycho-geographic GPS that guides the user through the database of the Panama Papers, in search of the physical traces of the offshore banking within the city landscape. The workshop starts with a theoretical introduction by Laura Calbet. Drawing connections between the housing financialization of the newly constructed residential property on Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum and global investment funds, Laura Calbet exposes private equity investments, development funds and corporate networks
that finalize construction projects on the ground by guaranteeing each other's loans. Equipped with the Offshore Tour Operator, participants are then sent on a hunt for shell companies, trust firms, domiciliation agencies, shadow finance offices and agents that are referenced in the Offshore Leaks, Panama Papers and Bahamas Leaks databases. The notes and photographs taken during these expeditions will be reviewed and analyzed in a joint debriefing at the end of the workshop.
The workshop will be held in English.
