The project takes place in the small town of Nongpho near Ratchaburi. Title: PLASTIC KILLER. Theme: How can local communities deal with their own waste? The plastic garbage from Nongpho will be collected and piled up into a huge „stupa.“ Then the garbage has to be eliminated. But how, by burning, burying, will it succeed? 15 – November – 16 December 2018 – Discussions, lectures, interviews on waste, recycling and culture. Public rubbish collection, construction of the „stupa“, ideas workshops. 16 December 2018 – Social Plastic Bye Bye Party.
