From Trash to Treasure

The value of the worthless within art

From the early 20th century to the present day, artists have constantly addressed the politically, economically and culturally charged issue of waste, how it is defined, what its potential is and how it is used. This review shows how items that are worthless and left behind are transformed by the artistic gesture. Covering three key themes, this exhibition presents 70 contemporary and historic works which address the relationship between art and material value, the effects of the diversity of materials on traditional panel painting and attitudes to the history of the usage of the discarded.

Artists (among others):
Arman, Catherine Bertola, Joseph Beuys, George Brecht, Peter Buggenhout, Christo, Tony Cragg, Jürgen Drescher, Marcel Duchamp, Sylvie Fleury, Gilbert & George, Tina Hauser, Jan Henderikse, Robert Jacobsen, Ray Johnson, Asger Jorn, Arthur Køpcke, Igor und Svetlana Kopystiansky, Korpys/Löffler, Alicja Kwade, Urs Lüthi, Gordon Matta Clark, Olaf Metzel, Robert Morris, Bruno Mouron & Pascal Rostain, Vik Muniz, Raffael Rheinsberg,  Dieter Roth, Karin Sander, HA Schult, Kurt Schwitters, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Philip Topolovac, Jacques de la Villeglé, Wolf Vostell, Robert Watts, Diet Wiegman, Markus Zimmermann
