A performance by Jenny Magnus

Salvagers by Jenny Magnus

After all the pieces have collapsed, who picks them up again? Somebody has to get up and just get started. It’s all very well and good to decry the mess, lament the pain, but maybe something can be used again, once it’s been neatly sorted and organized. Upon whom does this salvaging job land? It’s a mess, but leaving it a mess won’t do. Someone has to start. That’s all that’s needed. A start. On cleaning up the collapsed… whatever. Think about the Trummerfrau, the women in Germany after WWII who climbed up on piles of demolished buildings and scavenged one brick at a time. Jenny Magnus contemplates the difficulty and necessity of reclamation, and the possibility of delivering some goods.
