Trash People,” the monumental exhibition that has been traveling the globe for 18 years and that has appeared at some of the world’s most beautiful and significant places, including the Alps, the Great Wall of China, the Red Square in Moscow and the Pyramids in Giza Egypt – is coming to Israel, April 5-26.

Hundreds of human-size figures constructed from 20 tons of recycled materials, including iron, glass, computer parts, cans and more, will dominate the skyline of Tel Aviv and will be placed on top of Ariel Sharon Park.

The exhibition is the work of German artist H.A. Schult, one of the most controversial artists in the world, whose name has become synonymous with the use of used and recycled materials.
