Reading the Internet: On Migration




Bill contributed a video interview, recorded on the streets of Nanjing, for the event Reading the Internet. This was in response to questions posed by curator Alessandra Cianetti such as:


Bill, in our email exchange you mentioned that for you Brexit started five years ago because the income-based law for British citizens married to non-UK ones does not allow you to move back to the UK with your Chinese partner. This has suddenly built walls that you were probably not expecting. How has this been impacting on you both as an individual and practitioner?


The full interview is available online on Something Other

The Wealth of Nations


This is a new work in development which inscribes Adam Smith’s classic economic treatise from 1776 onto a contemporary Chinese shopping mall district. Presented in the form of an audio tour, this is a form of collage that allows both the text to offer a commentary on the site and the site to inform our understanding of this text, which has become something of a neoliberal bible. This is a free event but reservation is necessary via the Contact page. Xinjiekou, Nanjing City Centre
