Predemocratic Republic

crox 108, Stefaan Dheedene: Ambassy of the
Predemocratic Republic (November 2003). First crox-project by Stefaan Dheedene.

The Ambassy of the Predemocratic Republic was housed
in Onderstraat at number 26. The African Republic, an archipelago of islets in the
Gulf of Guinea, offers itself for sale. The official sales billboard (in
Belgium drawn up by a notary) contains sales conditions generally analogous
with the conditions for the sale of Sabena, the former Belgian national
airline. Apart from he billboard - in the compulsory black on yellow - SD also
designed a flag and an emblem. The concept also includes a predemocratic website
(which he fails to finalise because of a lack of time and money) and a
predemocratic telephone number.
