Waste land( Visual )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brooklyn based artist Vik Muniz grew up poor in Brazil. This film follows him as he returns to Rio de Janeiro, specifically to Jardim Gramacho, or "Garbage Garden." The world's largest landfill, it receives 7,000 tons daily, an astonishing 70% of all Rio's garbage. "We are not pickers of garbage; we are pickers of recyclable materials," says Tião, a catadore, or trash picker who thinks of himself and his fellows as environmentalists. The pickers have a union, which has built a recycling center, medical clinic, day care and skills-training centers, and community lending library of discarded books for their members. Muniz photographs a number of the pickers, reworks the photographs with garbage, and auctions several in London. Believing in the transformative power of art, Muniz donates the proceeds to the pickers who posed, in recognition of their lives, in honor of the dignity of their work

Afterglow : Vik Muniz : pictures of ruins by Vik Muniz( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and Italian and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seemingly enigmatic title of 'Afterglow' in fact alludes to this central theme of ruins, as explained by Muniz himself: "Afterglow is the scattering of red sunlight on atmospheric particles that causes the sky to turn bright pink after the sun goes down or before it rises. It is like a material memory of its bright period, a residue, a lingering reminiscence. Ruins are the afterglow of brilliant civilizations, something that while documenting a fact also attests to its extinction. Thus began Muniz's new series, Afterglow, inspired by the Italian capriccio, the Venetian tradition and masterful paintings by artists from the Fondazione Giorgio Cini collection such as Francesco Guardi, Dosso Dossi and Canaletto. Works by artists such as Caspar David Friedrich and Giovanni Paolo Panini also became the objects of study and interpretation by an artist who is known for his re-creations of iconic and historically significant paintings. These extraordinarily bold large-scale colour photographs, displayed alongside a unique handmade sculpture made of Murano glass and produced at Berengo Studio 1989, are representative of the artist's return to the roots of his inspiration: the relationship between Vik Muniz and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, with its priceless collection of ancient art which proves able to inspire even the most irreverent contemporary artist. Exhibition: Palazzo Cini, Venice, Italy (21.04.-15.11.2017)

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pendant 3 ans Waste Land suit l'artiste brésilien Vik Muniz de Brooklyn à Jardim Gramacho en banlieue de Rio de Janeiro. Dans la plus vaste décharge du monde, il retrouve son Brésil natal pour un projet artistique inédit : photographier les "catadores" les ramasseurs de déchets recyclables dans des mises en scène composées d'objets et matériaux rescapés des poubelles. Au fur et à mesure de sa collaboration avec ces personnages hors du commun, Vik va saisir tout le désespoir et la dignité des catadores, alors même qu'ils parviennent à réinventer leur vie en prenant part à son oeuvre d'artiste."
