from various and ongoing digital legal activities by the ubermorgen 
group.

about ubermorgen:: : artist | company
The approach that ubermorgen:: : artist | company has taken is far 
removed from the traditional understanding of art practice, 
resembling acts of social net terrorism or radical corporate 
marketing strategy. Operating largely within the web environment, but 
not obeying normative approaches to performative public interventions 
or structured net art activity, ubermorgen applies the professional 
approaches of a corporation in marketing approaches and brand 
building, backed by the understanding of online communities and 
radical thinking to a range of projects that make an impact on large 
audiences (whether directly or indirectly) around the world. The 
byproducts of their digital legal art projects often exist in the 
form of printed documents as well as photocopies, thus making the 
distinction between originals and fakes very difficult. The 
exhibition [f]originals (fake - originals) evolves out of this 
process and focuses on the legal documentation resulting from 
www.vote-auction.net (initially www.vote-auction.com), where they 
offered United States voters the opportunity of selling their votes 
online during the last general election, which saw George W. Bush 
elected as president.
