This exhibition was a collaboration between Matthew Buckingham and Joachim Koester, who presented a five-channel video installation featuring the anarchist community of Christiania in Copenhagen, Denmark. In the work, Sandra—a fictional character—explored the “free city,” intertwining her outside perspective with historical and factual information related to the site. Since the scenes were projected on different screens, viewers were encouraged to build their own narratives, contributing to the investigation of the influence that subjective and arbitrary assumptions have on the construction of history. Sandra of the Tuliphouse or How to Live in a Free State was curated by Debra Singer.
