What People Do For Money

Manifesta 11

Zürich, Switzerland

June 11 – September 18, 2016 

At Manifesta 11 (2016) Mike Bouchet presented an 80 ton sculpture made of human sludge in the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art. The concept for Manifesta 11, “What People Do For Money”, hosted by the city of Zürich, was based on pairing an artist with a particular profession. Mike Bouchet had chosen to work with the city’s waste water treatment facility.
