With their series State 1–4, Rimini Protokoll set out to explore fields outside of what can be organized and controlled by the nation-state today.
Rimini Protokoll look back at the essence of the powers whose separation was once intended to form the essential mechanism for monitoring state structures. To what extent are these powers still able to regulate the decisive impetuses for change faced by societies?
The unfinished Berlin airport, the never-ending A3 freeway project in Italy, the soccer arenas in Qatar: delayed completions and cost adjustments, the complex interdependencies of private and public stakeholders, the invisible links in the entire world….
– What do mega-construction sites tell about our society? Why do states build and for whom? By participation or master plan? In the second part of the tetralogy about post-democratic phenomena, Rimini Protokoll look at large construction sites as models for the current constitution of society.
The audience follows eight experts on construction site tours across serveral simultaneous stages. A Romanian construction worker takes the audience with him to lay tiles and talk about overtime and illicit employment. An investment consultant draws up a cost-benefit analysis for investments in “concrete gold.” A lawyer introduces the audience to how to fight supplementary claims by subcontractors. The former smoke extraction engineer for Berlin’s BER airport reconstructs the ruins of his building site. An attorney takes a look behind the scenes of the largest corruption case in North Rhine-Westphalia. An economist oversees Singapore as a master plan for post-fossil construction. And a biologist shows how ant colonies build more successfully than humans.
Rimini Protokoll translate the interlaced network of international investors, construction consortiums and contractors, public interests and outsourced suppliers into a large, navigable spatial model.
