Three characters return to a desert commune to tell three stories. Each one continuing until they reach a solution or a dilemma. Developing narratives that could be described as significant and marginal simultaneously. Addressing the urban/non-urban, the border zone and the locations of pre/post-presentation.

Tin mining, Hotel California and throwing spoons across bars in Tokyo all contribute to a text that indicates the collapses inherent in any attempt to pin down the shifting state of our urban structures. Literally No Place was outlined during a public presentation in Brussels for the exhibition Indiscipline in 2000. That improvised speech created the basis of this book, which attempts to address how changes in concepts of conscience and ethics have left their trace in the built world.
