The installation is essentially made up of two synergistic parts: a more open-interpretive and rundown concrete speaker’s desk with traces of an eventful history and a glass panel that contrasts with its materiality and aesthetics and links the sculpture texturally to socio-political issues.
Thererby Best Before appears on several levels: As an interactive installation that allows the viewer to playfully slip into a fictional representative role, as a dystopian historic relict from a bygone democratic era and as a commentary on the relationship between the economy and the state.
