WEG DAMIT – Die Kunst der Entsorgung

Free TV Premiere

The rhythm of garbage men and women who are doing what needs to be done. Collecting what is to be disposed of. The discarded. The displaced. Fragments of human biographies, compressed into press bales.

In Karin Berghammer new documentary film, philosopher and artist Elisabeth von Samsonow explores the places where the excrement of our society is collected, moved, sorted and, with luck, given a new purpose. She observes, sniffs and describes and lets us participate in her reflections, which are as profound as they are humorous and with which she always tempts us to rethink the familiar. 

GET RID OF IT – The Art of Disposal will be broadcasted for the first time on Sunday, 02.10.2022 at 11:05 pm on ORF2 and will be available online for 7 days in the ORF TVthek.
