Gratis tag collection of Chris Hunter and the Waschmaschine Gruppe
Since a collection is a little world constructed by the collector, it represents its owner. In our case the collected tags are changed by the simple gesture of collecting: the tags no longer signify the free second-hand objects, which they were taped on originally, but signify the whole cultural phenomenon of putting personal things in a tidy pile on the street “zum mitnehmen”.
Each item of the Gratis tag collection is from the streets of Basel. Collectors: Füsun Ipek, Bálint Liptay and Chris Hunter.
