Waste has become a global problem that will confront us with complex questions in the future. Nevertheless, the side-products of our modern consumer society are increasingly omnipresent, be they flotsam in the oceans or piled up into mountains on the outskirts of our cities. This exhibition looks at the background to the problems and possible strategies for solving them.  



 

“Waste can be a valuable resource or undesirable left-overs, waste is political and social, but above all, unavoidable. Waste never disappears completely and always leaves its mark,” according to the introduction to “Times of Waste − Was übrig bleibt”. To track the path waste takes, the exhibition follows the path taken by a smartphone, along the route of transport and recycling. This everyday object takes exhibition visitors to very different places, such as landfill sites, research laboratories and repair shops, where they meet the people involved. The questions and problems presented in this way require new approaches and a deeper engagement with the subject. This exhibition has been created in conjunction with a research project at Basel’s university of art and design, the Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst FHNW.
