The DSNY and NYU have collaborated through this project to lay the foundation for the eventual brick-and-mortar DSNY Museum. The exhibition evolved from a course, “Making a Museum: Materializing Regimes of Value with the New York City Department of Sanitation,” taught by Haidy Geismar, a professor in NYU’s Museum Studies Program and in Anthropology, and Robin Nagle, director of NYU’s Draper Interdisciplinary Master’s Program and the DSNY’s anthropologist-in-residence. Nagle’s book, Picking Up, is out next year from Farrar, Straus & Giroux.
