The illustrated book was published to coincide with the exhibition of the same name curated by the artist Clare Goodwin at the Kunstmuseum Kolin21 in 2014.

Clare Goodwin's Museum des Unerwünschten (Museum of the Unwanted) is about things left lying around: mostly worthless things that, despite being no longer used, are nevertheless preserves of past life and as Walter Benjamin puts it, "confront us with the rusted soul". Her project focuses on the practice of artists who use such objects for their creative activity and incorporate them into their aesthetic work.
