|Ministry of Waste Disposal /
Department: Arts, 1994
Exhibition »All & Tag«, Dresden
Installation at the Gallery Rähnitzgasse and action in its neighbourhood (details)
Archive box, milk bottles, water, oil, photo documentation
With this request I left a milk bottle, whose cream layer was black waste oil, in front of every door at the Rähnitzgasse Street in Dresden. The gallery, as the Arts Department of this imaginary office, was supposed to carry out a statistic of »milk bottles« declared as »garbage« and care about their disposal.
My considerations were among others: Which responsibilities for maintaining our natural basic living conditions carry the arts and culture? Are ecological considerations a hindrance of the expression liberty? Who distinguishes art from garbage?
