The Walls of the WTO | 10 minutes | 2018 | Ryan S Jeffery &    Quinn Slobodian    A ten minute short video that explores the origins of the idea of a global economy through the artwork on the walls of a unique building, the Centre William Rappard in Geneva, once the home of the International Labour Organization and now the headquarters of the World Trade Organization. Tracing the appearance, erasure and reappearance of the toiling human body on the artwork of the building’s walls, they tell the story of a global capitalist project as a transnational system of governance where the flow of capital across borders is protected as a human right, while the movement of people is met with proliferating forms of restriction and regulation.
