Let’s talk dirty
Strange how, from our mighty porcelain thrones, we dissociate ourselves from the abject and complex materials we produce every day. Here are three clips on the very serious subject of poo.
The first clip is from The Phantom of Liberty (1974) by Luis Buñuel.
The second presents the artwork Cloaca by Belgian conceptualist Wim Delvoye.
The third is a TED-talk by Rose George who tries to answer the question: «where does that stuff go?»
