Superflex is a artist collective from Denmark that was found in 1993 by Rasmus Nielsen, Jakob Fenger and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen. Their work is often connected with social engagement, alternative economics and self-organisation. They´re developing all sorts of stuff such as beer, internet platforms, films which often it incorporates the public as well. Their latest project is a film in which a  replica of a Mc Donald´s restaurant is flooded.

Superflex – Flooded Mc Donald´s

Flooded McDonald’s is a film work in which a convincing life-size replica of the interior of a McDonald’s burger bar, without any customers or staff present, gradually floods with water. Furniture is lifted up by the water, trays of food and drinks start to float around, electrics short circuit and eventually the space becomes completely submerged.

Flooded McDonald’s is a film by Superflex. Produced by Propeller Group (Ho Chi Minh City) in association with Matching Studio (Bangkok) and co-produced by the South London Gallery, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Denmark) and Oriel Mostyn Gallery (Wales) with generous support from the Danish Film Institute.
