Delmar, who founded Debora Delmar Corp. (also known as DD) in New York in 2011, has created a fictional juice brand called MINT, after the acronym Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey, a term popularized by Jim O’Neill from global investment banking organisation Goldman Sachs. This was under the premise that these countries will become the future economic powers, which —as the press release notes —does not necessarily reflect the current social, economic and political conflict happening there.
The show will combine corporate and organic aesthetics as the official head quarters of MINT, offering the promise of a dream lifestyle in its guise.
The work and exhibition is a part of 2016s Berlin Biennale.
