The much lauded artist-duo knowbotiq are among the pioneers of the Swiss media scene. In their collaborative project 'Swiss Psychotropic Gold' they pursue the links in the global metabolism of gold and Switzerland’s role in it. They track down the fleeting and often invisible paths of the molecules, the emotions, and the violence. In this way we discover how that conflictladen precious metal is “purified” in the context of technocracy, philanthropy, and neutrality and refined for later use.
