DKult Ethiopia - 1

June 30, 2014 - I might be out of the loop or behind the times on this one. I admit to being late in documenting this work from DKult Ethopia. I am no expert on international postal systems, but I do think this might have been mailed from Ethiopia. I am not aware, however, that any official DKult chapter has ever been established in Ethiopia nor do I know of any Trashpo performances or projects in that country. The Fluxus stamp adds another layer to the mystery.

DKult Ethiopia - 2

Possibly this is a brilliant piece of trash parody, commenting on the waste and excess of consumer culture in the global context of shrinking resources and rising inequality especially between the 1% and all the rest of us. Certainly Trashpo is a protest against consumer culture and a plea for recycling, among other things.

Many thanks to the unnamed correspondent from DKult Ethiopia!
