[...] "How nice that all of this dirty stuff is made shiny by viewers beholding it through transparent plastic that protect them from potential unpleasantness: this protected viewing is without a danger of infection and doesn't stink. It is all rather grotesque when viewers look at it from 'outside'. Shame then comes to the fore when the viewer has to take a good look at his- or herself as part and parcel of this anonymous throw-away culture. And odd as well as uncomfortable, when rubbish is incorporated into conceptual art without making a claim to a moral high ground and allowing these objects to be presented in a neutral, bureaucratic setting."

Quote from: Ulrich Puritz, “Der Betrachter ist in Arbeit” (the viewer is in process)
