Why I Am Leaving

Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein declared in 2009, “I’m doing God’s work”, a mere synonym for the destructiveness of his predatory finance mob. For one of his employees this leitmotif became slightly problematic after “just” twelve years at the “Great is Good” gang. Greg Smith left the company with a cardboard box full of resentment regarding the “Too big to Fail” crime syndicate. Here, Goldman Sachs’s logo refers to a tilted Enron-esque shape, tipping over, while for Malevich the Black Square was of spiritual significance, its positioning high in the corner is a sacred spot, a place where the hawk-like CEO’s often nest. Up there in their board rooms behind glass tiled facades, they’re shielded from reality and social responsibility.
Bhesky’s Uninvited Oeuvre
Media: Print
Year: 2020
Size: 47.0 cm × 68.0 cm
Paper: Meta Gloss 100 g/m²
The fictional character CJ Bhesky is the CEO of a global disruptive company, operating via an online platform hosting rental apartments, houses, rooms and spaces. His incentive is profit driven, snatching in his run downhill everything he can get. The consequences of his actions are slowly becoming visible in the street. Whole areas previously known for their vibrant multicultural city life have become homogeneous tourist traps, with singular economic activity.

People who do not know the steam and sweat of a real factory can find industrial space romantic or interesting. But in many ways industrial spaces are more interesting than “post-industrial” offices, apartment houses, and shopping centres. Their façades are often adorned with archaic emblems and sculptures. Yet this ornamentation is a conceit of nineteenth-century technology. The façades of many loft buildings that were constructed between 1820 and 1880 were cast in standardised iron parts that could be ordered from a catalogue, mounted, and taken apart at will. Cast Iron(ically), the mass production of an earlier industrial era looks to our eyes like individuality.

A dedication to the author of the book Loft Living, Sharon Zukin. The analysis points at the emergence of artists as a force of gentrification and the related rise of ‘creative city’ policies around the world. As easy as 123, artists’ districts – trailing SoHo – have become a global tourist attraction.
Who’s afraid of Red, Red, and Green

After the famous Barnett Newman painting was vandalised, it turned out the restoration costs raised exponentially. Replacing the orginal Red, with thick layers of varnish, it became a so called ‘headache file’ for the city of Amsterdam. This story is quite an exemplary example, and used here as metaphor for the political situation in Berlin vs. the boiling housing market, and the reaction of the RRG coalition.

The bouncing suitcase is used here as a metaphor for tourist gentrification and is musically expressed in the song Strollin’ ‘n Rollin’ by CJ Bhesky, a rewriting of Limp Bizkit’s original.

Alright ‘tourie’, keep on rollin’ B’nBer, you know what time it is. A burstin’ suitcase, keep on rollin’ B’nBer, move on.
Les Classes Dangereuses

Just before the Haussmann renovation of Paris, Honoré Antoine Frégier coined the term ‘the dangerous class’, refering to the ‘boujee’ idea of pinpointing the urban poor as threatening criminals.
Delos

Paper: Meta Gloss 170 g/m²
The ‘free zone’ has changed the lives of a small elite, however for the majority of ‘zone workers’ it has been pushing them in the wrong direction. This publication speculates a semi-fictional storyline about a powerful real estate corporation named Delos. Providing opportunities in the ‘free zone’ for a migrant labour force. What at first looked like a golden opportunity to change their lives; soon spiraled down into a dusty nightmare.

Nichts ist umsonst. Nothing comes for free. That’s the new mantra of this settled down coworking space. But now that the ‘touristification’ in the city center has taken a grip on the cash register is the CEO driving his beloved project into a cul de sac? According to him action has to be taken, ‘whoever wants to be here must consume’. Coworking = Consuming!
NonPlace AirSpace

Marc Augé coined the term ‘supermodernity’, describing the phenomenon of people moving through ‘non places’ linked by technology. It’s possible to travel the world and never leave AirSpace, sipping cortados in industrial lighted, reclaimed wood decorated, WiFi bars. Placelessness, becomes the warm embrace of AirSpace, using technology to break down geography.

After the fall of the Wall the capital of Germany has opened up, changing housing into neoliberal infused commodity. Is there still room for the poor after 26 years?

Staggering Souvenir
Media: Print
Technique: Risograph
Year: 2016
Size: 19.7 cm × 27.8 cm
Client: Countach Studio, Bordeaux
Staggering Souvenir reveals the love affair between the ‘bubblicious’ happening of the World Expo and the effects of rising housing prices on the merciless housing market in Dubai. The World Expo is in a way rooted in superstition—it’s a compulsive ritual—to prove the wealth and architectural power of a nation to the others. Enforcing the superstitious ‘show off’ mentality of the elite on a global scale, and ‘unwelcoming’ the foreign worker on the Emirate streets.
