In the art action Picnic on a dump initiated by Sašo Sedlaček, a group of artists expose themselves to the extreme environment of the city dump area. Through various actions from daily life they show how the rules of body and environment hygiene do not remove the problem, but rather only push it aside and hide it away from the eyes of the public: at the dump we can throw rubbish on the floor, a sink for disposing used water is not needed. The fact that the existing ideals and norms for cleanliness are completely fantasmatic is even further emphasized by the inscription extending on the rubbish hill of the Ljubljana dump: Hollywood.
