Various works by Binders Full of Burgers

“Binders Full of Burgers” was a Tumblr run by Lisa Rienermann and Anna Lena Schiller with the support of Sylke Gruhnwald during the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election. Using fast food and condiments, Rienermann and Schiller lend a more whimsical, sardonic, and tasty perspective on politics.
