Oh, Plastik

Winterthur - Gewerbe Museum
03/06/2012 - 07/10/2012
Plastic bags are found everywhere in the world; their useful life is fleeting yet they are almost indestructible. These feather-light, gently rustling objects have a versatile beauty. In addition to their use for packaging and carrying things, they have been adapted for a wide variety of other purposes. They reflect consumer behavior, advertise status, reinforce identity, damage the environment and narrate our cultural history. At the same time, they are a symbol of our global society. The exhibition in the Forum is dedicated to the plastic bag as an everyday item and as a focus for art and design. This much-discussed plastic product is explored in the context of society and the environment and as a theme of contemporary artistic work in the fields of painting, photography, installation, performance, urban art and design. The Gewerbemuseum's in-house exhibition is curated by Susanna Kumschick and Ida-Marie Corell, author of "Alltagsobjekt Plastiktüte", which was published in 2011.
