In 2015 Matthias Meyer and Alexander Rischer undertook an artistic research project about the life of the notorious pickpocket, George Barrington, whose career brought him from the aristocratic circles in late 18th-century London to Australia, where he became chief of police in Parramatta. A central outcome of the project, this book features original transcripts of the court cases against him, published in German for the first time, among other findings.
