Sabine Beyerle handled goods in the spirit of a traditonal caravan. Berlin friends gave ten different items to be traded during the trip. Each object was given a label with details of who, where, what had been exchanged. Each time it was swapped, another label was added. Sabine Beyerle traded practically everything without giving a certain value to the objects. The exchange chains thus reflects the different appreciation of material goods according to different geographical places and cultures.
