Eloísa Cartonera” , is a non-profitable, social and community-related artistic project settled in Buenos Aries, Argentina. The central office is a cardboard store – a place where cardboard and paper is sold – named “No hay cuchillo sin Rosas” (“There’s no knife without Roses”). There, cardboard collectors exchange ideas with artists and writers. The cardboard collector is exclusively a South American phenomenon. (To understand the concept, they are unemployed people who are excluded from the labor and commercial system because they do not have educational resources or because they do not belong to a social class. That is why they pick up cardboard and paper around the city. The next step is to sell their collection. Then, most of the paper and cardboard is recycled and sold again. Often there are entire families working as cardboard collectors).
