"Trash people"--an installation of waste by HA Schult

1000 Trash People in front of the Cologne Cathedral 2006

The Trash People are life-size representations of people created from waste material.

HA Schult, the famous action artist, first exhibited them in Germany in 1996. The figures caused such a positive response that he decided to take them on tour : La Grande Arche de la Défense in Paris and Moscow’s Red Square in 1999, the Great Wall of China in 2001, the Giza Pyramids in 2002, Switzerland’s Matterhorn in 2003.
