2020 / Work in Progress
This long-term project began in 2013 and currently consists of approx. 30 000 photographs.
The Wall Street Project is an ongoing long-term study that addresses past, current and future material cultures of New York’s Financial District through the means of photographic observation, research, writing, and critical re-contextualization. The project itself is based on the artist's proposition that financial capitalism is the most prolific and influential sculpting force existing today and the prospect that an in-depth consideration of this form-giving will allow its underlying processes, ideologies, and structural impacts to be seen anew.
TWSP consists of several bodies of works that range from writings to interrelated installations and from moving image works to a future online portal. All works are currently in progress. The project's title is a nod to and acknowledgement of Walter Benjamin's The Arcades Project, the scope of which has inspired this endeavor.
