My Things

Moving to another apartment made clear to me how much I own. Things that have become dear to me, necessary things—a whole lot of other things that simply collected and that in daily life I wasn’t even conscious of. Sorting through all of my things and giving away everything that I didn’t want anymore was a tedious process. While I asked myself whether I would ever wear this t-shirt or read that book again, I started to think: How dependent are we on things? What drives us to consume? Who produces all of the things that we own and on what conditions? Is it legitimate to enjoy private property? How much or how little do others own? How do I feel about my property? This book developed while addressing these questions. For more than two years I documented all of my personal belongings in it. There are over 2,600 things. My things. (Gabriela Gründler)
