The Senegalese artist Moussa Ba designes African masks and paints his classic West African images on everything that seems somehow recyclable. His studio Denntal Recyclage in Popenguine also consists of upcylced objects - a corrugated metal wood cardboard palm leaves shelter, bursting with his works - there is no door!


The birds Ave Plastikvs from the creation of NiA
points in a refreshing way out that
annually innumerable birds with plastic-filled stomachs are starving to death miserably! She combines science, fine arts and design, and thus clarifies rational as well as emotional about the consequences of our consumption!


The improvisioneer Tobi does his work with the same motives. He visualizes as a video artist and performer the subject - his ideas leap on him mostly whyle surfing.
