M201: In God We Trust
An accompanying publication to the work exhibited by Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan as part of the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003, 'M201 In God We Trust' features the iconic Philippine jeepney. A remnant of the American military vehicle, it has been re-purposed by Filipinos as a basic mode of public transportation. In the Aquilizans' work, it is "reconditioned" into a "makeshift base of operation, a recycled domicile, a caravan of goods, an improvised camp or colony, a household-in-the-making, a birthright repatriated from the ruins and remains of dispossession."
