IF VALUE, THEN COPY: How the clothes brands worn by Cambodian farmers inspired us to create an open source beer and set up a factory in a museum that would mass produce copies of the artist Sol Lewitt´s works. How farmers in the Amazon would suddenly consider brands as raw materials that could be used to improve living conditions and regain control of local crops. How our legal struggles inspired us deeply and taught us how deep the rabbit hole really is when challenging intellectual property.


Superflex is an internationally renowned Danish artists’ group founded in 1993 by Jakob Fenger, Rasmus Nielsen and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen. Their projects bring light to unequal forces of global economic cultural production and seek to offer “tools” to everyday creators to become more equal participants in democratic cultural production. Through their projects such as Copyshop, Guaraná Power, Supercopy, Rebranding Denmark, and Free Beer—Superflex has suffered prohibition orders and police raids relating to their artistic use of commercial signs and symbols. Finding that the restrictions placed on their work sometimes led to unexpectedly interesting results, Superflex began to explore the productive potential of prohibition and conceived a series of projects structured to impose regulations on others.

The humanities Institute is the “research hub” for the humanities at uC Davis. Each year we provide fellowships and awards to faculty and graduate students working in the humanities and humanistic social sciences and support a wide array of interdisciplinary research collaborations. Our events offer a forum for exchange around questions of critical importance in areas such as the environment, food and health, and history and culture as well as give our faculty in the humanities and the


creative arts an opportunity to showcase their work. we exist to facilitate the research of uC Davis faculty and graduate students and to bring that work to an audience beyond


the university. Fulfilling this mission would not be possible without the generous support of private foundations and individuals who understand how important the humanities is to the future of the public university.
