In what could be a comment on the growing free economy, or maybe just a throwback to the countercultural “Free Stores” of the 1960’s, Danish art collective Superflex will be staging FREE SHOP in different stores around Haugesund, Norway. For the next few weeks, as part of the Dynamo-Haugesund 08 arts festival, Superflux will partner with shops who will give away customer’s purchases for free. The giveaways won’t be advertised as to surprise unsuspecting customers. Superflex has experimented in the past with alternative systems of distribution and economic production, like their Creative Commons-licensed beer franchise FREE BEER and their free photocopy shop and intellectual property discussion forum COPYSHOP.
