Global
Is a project by artists Christian Hillesö and Johan Tirén. In the year 2000 and again in 2008 they sent letters to the 100 largest companies, according to the Fortune Magazine Global 500, which is based upon the annual turnover of global corporations. The appeal to the ethical responsibility of such corporations - who tend to be involved in everyday lives in the global village - was manifested in three basic questions: what is your views on Democracy?, what is your views on power?, what is your views on economy? -Read their answers as well as non- answers online.

Copenhagen, Denmark
Is a Danish grass roots organization working for freedom and justice. They operate in between culture, fashion and politics. In 2006 they produced two t-shirts in support of FARC and PFLP. These organizations are in the EU list of terror organizations and this made the Danish Government charge them with supporting terrorism. Who's a freedom fighter and who's is a terrorist, and who gets to define that is the fundamental question. After being acquitted the first time, the second time they were convicted in the court. F&L is now trying to get the case to the highest Danish court.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
