Superflex are renowned for their playful, subversive analysis of our economic and social structures and describe their projects as ‘tools’. One of the new tools on show at Von Bartha is an installation consisting of numerous flower pots that each represent one of the world’s top twenty banks. Out of these grow a range of 3D printed psychotropic plants.
Superflex also continue to confront issues of copyright, intellectual property and trademark infringement with a new tool that directly references or ‘copies’ contemporary artist Hans Haacke’s 1960s installation Blue Sail.
