Waste can be replaced, but not destroyed. That was one of the main rules that Christian Unverzagt described in his 1991 classic with Volker Grassmuck "Das Müll-System. Eine metarealistische Bestandsaufnahme" (The Waste System. A Metarealistic Record). Waste is the troublesome and ecologically impurifying flip-side of modernity. More and more things produce more and more waste. Nowadays it has become a new resource to build industries on. Facing a completely garbage-saturated, polluted world, the challenge is, to let go of things, to let them be.
