But plastic – which can also be seen at work – only emerged in the early 20th century. And although it is indispensable in modern life, it has also become one of the biggest problems in the world.
City Bird is part of the exhibition 'Oysters and Lemons' in the Muiderslot, which can be seen from 2 September to mid-November 2022.
