Klas Eriksson (SE)

Klas Eriksson Works for Live Art Denmark 2018: “McDonalds Odense” for Live Art for Children McDonalds Odense For our festival Live Art for Children 2018, Klas recreated a McDonalds restaurant, run by and for children. His “McDonalds Odense” was situated 200 meters from the real McDonalds and had the same menu and the same prizes. As orders were placed, kids would run and fetch them.
