*spermöla    O**rganized by Basurama
    7-13 July 2008 @ Intermediae/Matadero (Madrid/Spain)*

Spermöla reproduces the forum of used objects or spermüll held under 
official auspices in some European countries. City governments announce 
the dates on which the residents of each street may deposit the objects 
they no longer want or use in a specific location so that others can 
take them. Spermöla aims to generate a useful platform or tool to 
prolong the useful lives of discarded objects and create a space for 
neighbours to meet based on the memory of those objects.

Spermöla consists of a workshop, a space of exchange and the launching 
of a webpage where any kind of object may be seen or left.

Pre-registration <http://intermediae.es/contact/workshop> 
(www.inermedie.es) until 30 June via submission of personal data and a 
few lines explaining the reasons one wishes to take part in the 
workshop, which has space for 10 attendees. Basurama will select the 

Workshop contents:
1. Looking for, cataloguing, and setting out the useful objects to be 
displayed and the exchanged.
2. Updating and managing the contents on the Web tool created by meipi 
to be launched on 8 July.
3. Design and distribution of divulgation material: Creation and display 
of an announcement-furniture assembly made of objet trouvés (found
