Y€$ 1 €UROSHOP
Things you don’t need for a euro (and other effective scams).
Welcome to the Y€$ 1 €UROSHOP, a discount pleasure dome and the future of shopping! Y€$ 1 €UROSHOP is a variety store that sells inexpensive, redundant items to the public for 1 euro. It’s so cheap you can use it once and throw it away! ROCKBOTTOM PRICES. Buy more, buy worse! All Y€$ 1 €UROSHOP products are made by hand with the cheapest materials. Inexplicably alluring that, the Y€$ 1 €UROSHOP is a playground for bargain hunters and hoarders. Everything you don’t need, all items 1 EURO.
The Y€$ 1 €UROSHOP questions ideas of use value and exchange value of labour in relation to the artifact as commodity and artist as worker.
Y€$ 1 €UROSHOP is a collaborative project created by Pester and Rossi for the Retramp Gallery, Berlin. This temporary enterprise will be open to the public launching on Thursday 2nd August at 7PM and runs until Sunday 5th August 2012.
