This project has been developed near the Italian exclave Campione. The commune was once famous for Europe‘s largest casino, called „the factory“ by locals. This second casino with a square footage of around 55‘000 m2, designed by Mario Botta, was opened in 2007. The income from the casino was sufficient for the operation of Campione without the imposition of taxes, or obtaining of other revenue. On 27 July 2018 the casino was declared bankrupt and closed.
The musical and visual concept of this project is built around this unreal, almost surrealistic place.
