Superflex is an artists’ group founded in 1993 by Jakob Fenger, Rasmus Nielsen and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen. Superflex’s works are “tools” that influence their social or economic contexts. In the past, the group has paid visitors to enter an exhibition; developed and marketed a new beverage; and produced a self-sufficient, portable bio-gas unit to provide energy for families in Africa and South America. Projects are often rooted in their particular location and invite participation from the visitor. Superflex works within and outside traditional art contexts, collaborating with architects, designers, engineers, businesses and marketers.
