ArtReview has agreed on for the period 14.10.2010 - 14.10.2011 not to reproduce the word, SUPERFLEX in any material published by ArtReview, including in all editions and online editions of ArtReview magazine. Contract, by SUPERFLEX, is the fifth commission in the series Offer and Exchange: Sites of Negotiation in Contemporary Art, co-curated by Daniel McClean and Lisa Rosendahl and produced by Electra, London. Through projects engaging with alternative models for the creation, dissemination and maintenance of social and economic organisation SUPERFLEX has been involved in several legal disputes, as well as suffered prohibition orders and police raids, relating to their artistic use of commercial signs and symbols. However, 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.
