Strawberries in winter, new fashion trendy and cheap. Hip electronics. Shopping for the same clothes worldwide. Cargo – Everything always everywhere.

That means Containers shipped on air polluting vessels. Things which you do not need are offered at low-cost. The consumer world is overwhelming when vegetables and fruits are transported at the most unthinkable times on the highway. Residents and air are burdened. Being able, being obliged, to choose out of an infinite variety of global goods means freedom. But it means also consuming natural resources, extinction of regional economic and exploitative working conditions in the distance.

Are there alternatives? What do artists say about Cargo – Everything always everywhere?
