Danes for Bush!

Flying the banner "Save us from Old Europe," Danes for Bush, a two-man Denmark-based NGO traveled the US during the 2004 elections in support of extending Bush's rule. As their site says, "Today it is obvious that Denmark chose the right side of the playing field."

The group is another fiction created by artist Jakob Boeskov, whose ID Sniper, a proposed rifle that would shoot GPS surveillance chips into the flesh of unsuspecting citizens from a distance, was featured in China's biggest weapons fair, China Police 2002. Danes for Bush, which is featured in the multi-venue exhibition Populism 2005, includes a comprehensive visual identity that includes everything from campaign buttons to an over-sized, inflatable pig mascot.
