Text topic: (Lack Of) Culture
Text author: Виолета Цветковска Оцокољић и Татјана Цветковски
In this papers the authors attempt to explore the relationship between contemporary art and industrial waste material and its interface with society. In addition, the paper deals with the physical and mental human pollution in modern society and the role of the artist as a witness and a visionary. Discarded objects, exploited and abandoned, like tired old men, became objects of idolatry and a new obsession for a number of artists. Question is how did it come to legitimate glorification of rubbish and waste, ie. many discarded and worn items of industrial production and mass culture.
