From Thurgau via Berlin to Belgrade

Daniela Gugg, born in 1981, 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. Das Papier der Anderen 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 doing so 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.
