Design of TOOLS book by SUPERFLEX. The book and its content, which includes descriptions of various SUPERFLEX projects and texts from different sources is concerned primarily with social empowerment. This book is intended as both a source of information and a tool in its own right.

SUPERFLEX's projects generally are referred to as tools. These projects arise out of the artist groups specific interest in social and economic commitment. Projects are developed alongside experts and once these projects have been established they can be carried on and maintained by the various users. The tools that are created invite people to do something and to activate and the book is an embodiment of this philosophy – read and use.

The book consists of three main sections. The first section examines some of SUPERFLEX's projects and is primarily picture based with brief texts. The second section is a collection of essays written by different authors, presenting various reflections on tools and there uses. The final section of the book focus's on SUPERFLEX's activities and the people involved.

Leipzig, DE



A Danish art group working in the field of art, engineering and science. Rather than working with art in a conventional sense, Superflex make tools for engaging users in social collaboration. The underlying philosophy of Superflex’s work is that art itself is a tool, not just for contemplation or aesthetic experiments, but for social empowerment. Superflex often collaborates with different experts and uses the art world as a showcase for their works.
