About the exhibition

From 2017 to 2021, the Danish artists’ group SUPERFLEX is realising a total of five projects in Graz and at the Kunsthaus. In 2017 they began with C.R.E.A.M., the fetish cash machines at the heart of the Kunsthaus foyer. In 2018 SUPERFLEX realised Free Shop in Graz, then Number of Visitors in 2019, with Lost Money following in 2020. These projects are dedicated to the fetishisation of money, the strict rules of economy-based societies as well as the reversal of money transactions.

The series concludes in 2021 with a solo exhibition titled Sometimes As A Fog, Sometimes As A Tsunami. It shows a selection of new as well as already existing works and sets its sights on capitalist enterprise as a factor triggering our realities, as a fluid form that seeps into people’s lives, into every crevice and corner of our reality. Sometimes as a fog, sometimes as a tsunami. The film installation Beyond The End Of The World forms a final point, literally. It shows a world in a state of complete transformation. Familiar structures break down, people have vanished, and a post-human stage is slowly created.

SUPERFLEX was founded in 1993 by Jakob Fenger (* 1968), Rasmus Nielsen (* 1969) and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen (* 1969). They studied at the Royal Art Academy in Copenhagen. The artists’ group has for years engaged with value creation processes, alternative economies, self-organisation and ethic actions.
