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)
"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.

Visiting Norrköping and the Museum of Work. Archive diving. Visiting mom.
Jag tänker ofta på min tid på Textile Arts Center i New York - den uppochnervända staden, den enorma rikedomen kontra de som satt i väntrummet på mödravårdscentralen i Brooklyn med crack-sår i munnarna och luktade sprit och ångest. Möjligheter och omöjligheter. I staden där "allt finns" fanns det inte särskilt mycket garn av bra kvalitet att köpa. Jag importerade från Sverige.
