The youngsters of “The Orchestra of Instruments Recycled From Cateura” use instruments fashioned out of recycled materials from a landfill where their parents eke out livings as trash-pickers, to regularly performing the music of Beethoven and Mozart, Henry Mancini and the Beatles. A concert they put on for The Associated Press also featured Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” and some Paraguayan polkas. Although the community of Cateura could not be more marginalized, the music coming from garbage has some families believing in a different future for their children.
Russian artists Leonid Tishkov and Boris Bendikov created a fantastic world illuminated with the moonlight where they tried to convey relations between the man and the Moon. This is a romantic story about a man who met the Moon and decided to stay with it forever. They named the installation ‘Private Moon’.
