Mundt gained supraregional attention through his group of works "trashstones", created in 1989. Trashstones are production wastes, which are being elaborately coated with synthetic resin and resemble boulders in the eye of the viewer. The collection of several hundred numbered individual objects includes "Trashstone 412" as biggest piece, with a weight of approximately one ton. Besides his sculptural creating, virtually as a preliminary stage, drawings, photos and films arise, putting these "trashstones" in a different context. Mundt's work was honored with the Jack Goldhill Award for Sculpture by the Royal Academy of Arts in London in 2007.
