Latitudes set up a temporary office-base camp in the former Dia Art Foundation building on 22nd Street, transposing daily operations while presenting our publications and other paraphernalia.

The BHQF also screened three films during the 'Latitudes presents...' part of the ‘No Soul For Sale’ screening & performance programme on June 28th.

During ‘No Soul for Sale’ Latitudes also premiered the 8 minute film '6 Hours Tide Object with Correction of Perspective', the new version of a 1969 film by Dutch Conceptual artist Jan Dibbets (1941) and the inaugural project of Portscapes, the commission series taking place throughout 2009 in and around Maasvlakte 2, the 2,000 hectare expansion of the Port of Rotterdam.
