Paolo Cirio

Loophole for All is a service to democratize offshore business for people who don't want to pay for their riches. It empowers everyone to evade taxes, hide money and debt, and get away with anything by stealing the identities of real offshore companies.

Exhibiting the art of corporate identity theft:

This project investigates offshore businesses through the idea of having a company "on paper" in countries considered offshore jurisdictions. On Loophole4All.com, the identities of offshore companies are on sale at a low cost to democratize the privileges of offshore businesses. This artwork utilizes aggressive business strategies for a political work of art and reverses corporate machination for creative subversive agendas.

In the offline art installation, the paper trail of the project is displayed with prints of the documents of the scheme set up for the operation. Among the printed and framed subsidiary certificate, the ID and the bills of the artist, the audience at the exhibition space is able to buy identities of companies from a pile of thousands of counterfeited paper certificates of incorporation. The art installation becomes a low cost identity shop for offshore companies and in doing so, democratizes both offshore business and the selling of conceptual subversive artworks. Further, the artist interviewed major experts and produced a video documentary investigating offshore centers to expose their costs and to envision solutions to global economic injustice.
