Superflex

The Danish artists' group Superflex (Rasmus Nielsen, Jakob Fenger and Bjornstjerne Christiansen) has been working together since 1993 on a series of projects related to economic forces, democratic production conditions and self-organisation. The artists have examined alternative energy production methods and commodity production in Brazil, Thailand and Europe in their projects, which both expose and question the existing economic structures. These artistic activities ÷ as, for example, the on-going project Guarana power, in which the artists developed a drink together with local farmers who cultivate the caffeine-rich berries of the guarana plant ÷ are not necessarily opposed to commercialism and globalisation, but try instead to render economic structures visible and to establish a new balance between producers and consumers.
