The documentation of a scandalous approximation of art to industry, executed by Heger / Dejanoff with their year-long exchange of a modest "dream car" in exchange for the most pricey art exhibition spaces that an international automobile corporation is permitted to use for its own purposes. Their unwillingness to compromise - a position with which the two artists embarked upon their symbiotic complicity - has evoked debates on commercialization, sponsoring and the notion of corruption. The artists' book presented here also blurs the boundaries drawn around the value system of art.
