CSV - Corporate Social Values
An art project of REINIGUNGSGESELLSCHAFT with Stiftung Warentest


The German Consumer Rights Organisation Stiftung Warentest opened it´s doors for this project and made it possible for the artists to be present for a specific product testing process. For the exhibition, an artistic analysis of the phenomenon of testing was created. It is based on the material which was produced during the collaborative process and with statements from product testers. The project has as theme the interdependencies of the „Ethics of Commodities“ and the „Aesthetics of Testing“.

Consumer protection is a product and for which growing number of market participants compete. An institution like Stiftung Warentest finds itself in rivalry with other vendors who publish product tests in publications that are financed by print adds. How compatible are mercantile interests and a claim of independence?
The importance of Consumer protection and ethical consuming are growing while common social values are being developed. Are consumers really defining contemporary society, as the sociologist Ulrich Beck asserts?

 

REINIGUNGSGESELLSCHAFT (the implications of the German term range from “Cleaning Service” to “Purification Society”) is an artists project group working at the intersection between art and social reality.
