In Liverpool the Blackmarket theme deals with the relationship between human being and its material world in the moment when things lose their form, deteriorate, rot, explode, slides into decay and remembrance and forgetting lose their distinction. In our economy of waste, garbage is the repressed side of consumption, whilst non- biodegradable, radioactive toxins have made waste an ecological survival problem. In response to this we have developed a range of methods to stabilise waste, such as recycling, burning, conserving or archiving. 50 experts recruited from Liverpool, including an archeologist, a garbologist, psychoanalyst, freegan,entomologist, politician, architect, and activist will put together a lexicon that fragments, mirrors and hallucinates the theme of waste – through stories, theories, documentation and myths.
