Abstract This paper shows why offshore is a form, not a place, by observing our implication in offshoring finance and detention. This is undertaken through a systems theorization that examines and compares two offshoring processes: Euromarkets production of xenomarkets and Australian border securitys offshoring of the mainland continent. Applications of offshores form produce paradoxes and hierarchies, indicating carefully designed political effects that allow us to pinpoint the spaces and class relations characterizing global spaces at the heart of the political present, and the labour and methods of their making.
