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—explores the "free city" intertwining her outside perspective with historical and factual information related to the site. Since the scenes are projected on different screens, viewers are 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.
