2011 Superflex: Modern Times Forever (Stora Enso Building, Helsinki)
Superflex´s work created for the IHME Contemporary Art Festival was a film and sculpture titled Modern Times Forever (Stora Enso Building, Helsinki). It was a fiction about what could happen to the Stora Enso building as an architectural and ideological symbol, over the next few thousands of years, if the days of humankind come to an end. The film lasted ten days and was shown in Helsinki Market Square on a 40m2 LED screen, so that one could see the original building simultaneously with the building in the film.
