In her two month residency in Kosice, Karina Marusinska was researching 
about waste and culture. She wanted to find out, what trash says about 
the city and its inhabitants as well as which role plays culture in the 
further European capital of culture. Marusinska connected both topics to 
an sensible insight view into the society of Kosice and recorded it in 
the video documentation “power of waste”. Also, she wrote several 
letters to key players in the city (major, dirctor of Kosice 2013 etc.) 
to ask for building up trash bins for culture all over the city.

*Ghenadie POPESCU*

On May 13 – 14. 2011 the 11th Wheelbarrow Olympics (Hung: 
“Talicskaolimpia”) took place in Hosszúhetény, a Hungarian village close 
to Pécs. This event is dedicated to the wheelbarrow, so sport events as 
well as cultural events connected to this vehicle took place. As this is 
one of Ghenadie Popescus favourite tools, naturally he also took part – 
not in the competitions, but with a unique sculpture, exclusively 
designed and built for this event (link
