Manufactory for Garbage Publications

Twice a year, the people of Karlsruhe take the things that do not matter to them anymore, down from the basements, out on to the streets. The few hours between the disposal of old belongings and the arrival of the garbage men are when the hunt happens for retrievers in search of all kinds of things.
Since January 2010, we have engaged in this hunt focusing on the re-evaluation of the manifested knowledge that rests in discarded books, magazines, advertisements and printed materials.
We only use raw materials gleaned from piles of unwanted throw-aways. We add nothing, besides a point of view.
