Deutsche Bank, the main sponsors of the Frieze Art Fair 2008, invited Sharon Hayes to create a unique artists' edition. 15 free editions could be found in the Deutsche Bank magazine, available at the fair. Hayes’s edition, I KNOW THAT THE EARS ARE THE ONLY ORIFICE THAT CAN’T BE CLOSED, 2008, explores the mapping of political desire onto personal desire and vice versa.
