Die Politisierung des Abfalls
Ordinary Waste: A Cultural Theory of Trash in the Modern Home

Elemente einer Kulturtheorie häuslicher Müllentsorgung

Trash: It sits in the street and in yellow bins, carefully sorted or carelessly discarded, omnipresent yet invisible. This study investigates the cultural politics of waste, including day-to-day life of the garbage can, the phenomenon of hoarding, and present-day trash separation. Modern trash is not only the basis of justifications of inequality. Garbage also reveals the limits of domination of the one over the other.
