RYBN.org and m-cult invite you to a workshop and tour to explore sites of offshore industries in Helsinki. A limited number of places available, please register by June 4.
Offshore Tour Operator is a psycho-geographic GPS prototype that guides the walk of the user through the database of the Panama Papers, in search of physical traces of offshore banking within the city landscape.
The event will take the participants on a dérive in Helsinki neighborhoods, in a hunt for shell companies, trust firms, domiciliation agencies shadow finance offices and other agents referenced in the Offshore Leaks, Panama Papers and Bahamas Leaks data bases. The GPS guides the user through audio indications. Participants are invited to document and share their findings of the offshore sites.
The event will start at m-cult with a brunch serving at 11 and finish at Alkovi gallery just in time for the RYBN.org opening at 2 PM.
