THE FEMALE BODY AS A PLACE OF REMEMBRANCE OF INTERNATIONAL DEINDUSTRIALISATION

 

I am taking photographs of former female textile factory workers at their former places of work.

The workers are wearing clothes from closed textile factories in Serbia and Germany.

They are wearing tops from Mladost, Serbia, jackets from Kluz, Serbia, tights from Esda, Thalheim, Germany and in front of a Singer sewing machine from Wittenberge, Germany.

All these factories have closed down.

The body becomes a symbolic site of memory of international deindustrialisation.
