Fabio La Fauci creates inspirational artworks to delight the poor, who are surviving by collecting deposit bottles in Berlin.People checking trashcans and looking for bottles is part of Berlin's urban image. These 'Pfandsammlers' or 'deposit collectors' spend days searching for empty beer and plastic bottles and return them to the supermarket to collect little deposit money.
Artist Fabio La Fauci, a member of our network, decided to do a social intervention: with added thoughts, quotes or poems the bottles become unique pieces and brighten the day of a Pfandsammler.
"Ein bisschen mehr als 8 Cent" is an open initiative which everybody can join. Make your own bottle with an inspirational quote, take a picture with a hashtag #flaschensammler and put the bottle on the street. You can follow the action on Instagram.
