In a Barcelona enmeshed in the globalised collaborative economy, a shared flat is sponsored by a Russian and American multinational. In exchange for a paltry few material goods, the occupants display the brand in the privacy of their home on a collection of ordinary clothing.
The shared flat, both an expression of modern-day neoliberalism and a relic of Stalinist totalitarianism (the kommunalka), is a contract as flexible as it is constrictive.
Artengo2000 presents a succession of genre movie scenes lubricated with microsociology and the psychoanalysis that imagines the meanderings of the protagonists through the dispositifs of the economy of sharing and their networks of friends connected by web platforms born in Silicon Valley.
