Nuclear family down the drain

The sticker says translated “The Nuclear Family in Denmark”. The placement on the dumpster seems rather symbolic with divorce rates at a historical high level (approximately every second marriage ends in divorce in Denmark) and the rise of the mixed families brought together from several marriages and backgrounds.

Off course it turns out the sticker is just a promotion initiative for a Danish creative collective and has no symbolic meaning what so ever.

More about the anthropological history of “Families” and “The Nuclear Family” in detail here:
