Obsolete Shit

Bologna, IT

From Artnet.com: Obsolete Shit is a blatantly small (4x4 in.) yet monumental 38-page pamphlet by the Italian artist, curator and longtime collaborator Stefano Pasquini. Clearly, Pasquini has a lust for trash, tourism and Arte Povera. His process, well documented in Obsolete Shit, is as follows: He sets a price limit to execute a public installation or sculpture (never above $20), builds it fast, displays it, takes a picture and then leaves it abandoned in hope that it might become a historical ruin. Baghdad, New York, Cuba and London have been unwilling hosts to this process. Some pieces have survived, while most are lost -- becoming (modest) legends on their own right. [...] Obsolete Shit is free and collaborators are welcome. Also by Pasquini is an excellent sound art project Why the Fuck not Ppodcast.
