For the New York edition Latitudes invited the Brooklyn-based artist group The Bruce High Quality Foundation to conceive its office-scenario, which incorporated the ‘ruins’ of an abandoned 1983 Burger King facility on Governors Island. www.nosoulforsale.com

The London edition coincides with Tate Modern's 10th Anniversary celebrations. Latitudes, the only Spanish organisation, has invited Catalan artist Martí Anson (1967) to set up their temporary office. In response to the need to travel to London, Anson proposed to set up his own company, ‘Mataró Chauffeur Service’ (in honour of his home city) and drive the curatorial duo from Barcelona to London and back.

Registering his employment as a driver, designing the livery of the single vehicle fleet and his uniform, and the journey to and from Tate Modern (including the ferry sailings from Santander to Portsmouth and back) all form a part of the project. The car is parked up for the weekend alongside a ‘typically Spanish’ picnic scenario of camping chairs, table and parasol.
