The Junk King: A Video About a Man That Collects a LOT of Trash

One part hoarder, one part artist, Vince Hannemann has been collecting junk since he was about 16

One part hoarder, one part artist, Vince Hannemann has been collecting junk since he was about 16 years old to create the appropriately-named Austin, Texas installation, the “Cathedral of Junk.” Continuously constructed since 1988, actions in 2010 by the city of Austin saw the demolition of roughly half the structure, amounting to a disappearance of more than 60 tons of materials. However, after receiving the go-ahead from an engineer and a building permit, Hannemann was joined by hundreds of volunteers as they took to rebuilding the original work. Here, director Evan Burns takes a look inside the cathedral as “The Junk King” sheds some light on the unique work and its ability to transport visitors to another place entirely.
