Ideoses 4: This Place Will Never Belong to Me

0114 Mar 2010

Where is the trash of our contemporaneity stored? Where do you find the refuse of society? Who do you look for the heaps of discarded people and things?

We are living in an era of consumer society. Our sense of satisfaction depends on the number of things and gadgets we possess. Advertising and mass media arouse and create our needs. Consumption has become a form of building personality and social position aligned with a system of brands. This breeds exclusion, frustration, a sense of failure. Economic and technological progress and their crisis impose a social order that produces trash, waste, dirt. There is no room for such things in the society of progress, and they are rejected, marginalised, forgotten, eliminated, jobless, homeless. Poured through from one heap to another, driven through from one place to another, they are never at home.
