Freeport Municipale

Part 2 Project 2016

Newcastle University, UK
This project takes the form of a ‘cemetery for artworks’ in Campione d’Italia, an Italian exclave located within Switzerland, a tax haven home to the biggest casino in Europe. The project looks at how since the financial crash of 2008 art has been increasingly viewed as an investment by the international elite and transformed into just another commodity, hidden away from the general public by those who can afford it.
