Superflex: Jakob Fenger (1968-), Rasmus Nielsen (1969 -) and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen (1969)
Liverpool to Let, 2012

Superflex are an collective based in Copenhagen; a group of artist–designer–activists committed to social and economic change. They produce what they call ‘tools’ – proposals and projects that invite people to join in and take part. For example, the artists worked with farmers who cultivate the caffeine-rich berries of the guarana plant to develop a drink. This ongoing project known as ‘Guaraná Power’ establishes a new way to look at the economy through democratic production. This and other projects have led to Superflex being embroiled in legal disputes and police raids; this then has led to another strand of work looking at the productive potential of prohibition. They have a new project called Liverpool to Let, 2012, commissioned for Liverpool Biennial, on until 25th November.
