Zu Verschenken / To Give Away

Award: NeuStart Kultur Scholarship from VG Bild Kunst


“Zu Verschenken” or “To Give Away” is a research project about Berlin’s popular culture of offering second hand goods, from clothings to furniture, by putting a box outside the building or placing them on the streets. I am curious about its underlying history and investigating why its popularity is not felt in other parts of Germany. The objects are intentionally documented with artistic photographic merit. The research is drawn from public spheres and people’s opinions. My goal is to let ideas emerge from the research materials before developing them into an exhibitable form. .
