Goldin + Senneby


(Sweden, 2004)

Goldin + Senneby is a framework for collaboration set up by artists Simon Goldin and Jakob Senneby and exploring juridical, financial, and spatial constructs through notions of the performative and the virtual. Their collaboration started with The Port (2004-2006), a series of insertions into the online world Second Life. In their more recent body of work, known as Headless (2007 – present), they approach the sphere of offshore fi nance and its production of virtual space through legal code. Looking at strategies of withdrawal and secrecy, they trace an offshore company on the Bahamas called Headless Ltd. A ghostwritten detective novel continuously narrates their investigations.
