The Offshore Economist, digital publication

The Offshore Economist (best viewed on Chrome) is a 5m-long PDF publication by the Demystification Committee, a group investigating the relationship between finance, secrecy and sovereignty. Published on the occasion of Transmediale 2018 in Berlin, The Offshore Economist offers a series of articles directly or obliquely discussing the theme of offshore finances. As the Committee puts it in its editorial:

“The publication focuses on those ruptures and cracks inherent to the practice and world of offshore, which are the qualifying loopholes for those invested, and investing, in it. Through fictional stories, marginal poetry, fragmented legalese and a shifting form and layout, this publication pursues an aesthetic of offshore — a world that is dual and slippery, real and beyond real, and — at times — surreal.”
