Examining the widespread use of discarded objects and materials in 20th-century art, this catalogue documents some 220 sculptures, reliefs, collages, installations and photographs by Carra, Schwitters, Duchamp, Cornell, Tapies, Kounellis, Manzoni, Paik, Filliou, Beuys, Spoerri, Nevelson, Boltanski, Serrano, Lemieux and nearly 150 other international artists, the works ranging from "readymades" and assemblages of industrial debris to photographic images of garbage dumps and corpses. Fine reproductions of the exhibited pieces and a pictorial chronology illustrating 168 related works dating from the 1910s to the 90s are accompanied by two introductory essays exploring the metaphysical dimensions of art created from waste materials, a selection of texts by featured artists and separate discussions of a "trash"-oriented aesthetic in contemporary architecture, cinema, theater, dance, literature and music.
