The Paper of Others - a Multimedia Art Exhibition by Daniela Gugg in collaboration with Alex Ferraté

 Multimedia Art Exhibition The Paper of Others
by Daniela Gugg in collaboration with Alex Ferraté 
(20.8.-26.8.2016) 



“Daniela Gugg deals for the current Facetten* with the materiality of the book itself: the paper and the language. In extensive research trips she traces the genesis of Šrenc, the recycled paper produced by a Belgrade paper mill.
Here Daniela Gugg uses the language and writing as an artistic means of expression and compacted their observations to an essay, which not only tells the story of the paper, but also the stories of the paper collectors. With a focus on the collectors – mostly members of the minority of Roma – is the Facetten also a reflection on national affiliations, borders, movement and migration.”
Text: Publishing house Benteli

*( Facetten is a publishing serie of the Cultural Foundation of Thurgau)

Daniela Gugg continually makes language, words and text her artistic material. She writes and tells stories. She delves into individual life histories or researches the social and historical characteristics of societies, putting the results of her research on paper. The paper of others brings the material qualities of paper, the carrier of this story, centre stage. Over the course of two extended visits to Belgrade (Serbia) Daniela Gugg traced the recycling loop of the Šrenc paper used in the publication. She spoke with the Roma who collect paper on the streets of the Serbian capital and visited the recycling plants on the edges of the city. In so doing she links the biographies of the paper collectors and their experiences of societal marginalisation and migration with Serbia’s history and social and economic realities as well as those of current-day Europe.

Multimedijalna izložba "Tuđi papir"


Daniela Gug neprestano stvara rečima, jezikom i tekstom. Ona piše i priča priče. Ona istražuje životne istorije pojedinaca ili pronalazi društvene i istorijske karakteristike društva, a rezultale stavlja na papir. The paper of others postavlja kao nosioca priče kvalitet papira. Tokom dva duža boravka u Beogradu Daniela je ispratila ceo proces reciklaže šrenc papira koji se koristi za publikaciju. Razgovarala je sa Romima koji sakupljaju sekundarne sirovine na ulicama Beograda i posetila je fabrike za reciklažu na obodima grada. Baveći se ovim ona je povezala biografije sakupljača papira i njihova iskustva, koja su posledica društvene marginalizacije i migracija. Takođe, ona je povezala istoriju Srbije i društvenu i ekonomsku realnost i trenutno stanje u Evropi.
