Invited for a month-long residency at New Langton Arts, Tercerunquinto proposed to put New Langton’s archive – including 30 years of documentation of past exhibitions, recordings of performances, ephemera, press releases, correspondence and even the institution’s economic records – up for sale on the open market. ‘After conducting an informal analysis of the structure of Langton as a non-profit institution,’ the collective writes, ‘acknowledging a history of chronic economic uncertainty – Tercerunquinto has identified Langton’s memory as its most valuable asset.’
