Who is weaving?
"In my case it was threads that caught me, really against my will. To work with threads seemed sissy to me. I wanted something to be conquered."
(Anni Albers, 1982)
Den här lilla vävstolen är inte enbart en leksak utan också ett redskap som lär dig de första grunderna i konsten att väva.
"In April 1995, a human rights group in Honduras discovered thirty-three Bangladesh workers in a free-trade zone factory, transported there by the contractor. They worked eighty hours a week for twenty cents an hour and could not leave their dormitories without permission from the company. They were sewing shirts that retailed $12.94 at Wal-Mart.
Notes on Liza Lou:
Narrowing - materials and labor.
This is the work it commands.
The way it is made.
Work with a lot of people = salary = paying for real-world stuff such as bills and babies being born and funerals...
Sharing stories while hands are embedded in the work.
Labor intensive, no value (?).
Look! Looks at the ground you are walking on, someone made it. Pay attention.
Dr Drej made it! Mårten Medbo: The truth is out there
