“The world’s good(s)” – a project day
In Germany we have a saying: “Kleider machen Leute”, which can be translated to English as “Clothes make the man”. But what exactly do they do with people? Dividing them in rich and poor people? What kind of goods do we buy? Where and under which conditions are they produced?
In this workshop we want to show the consequences of global production chains. Therefore, we take a look at selected examples of products and its journeys to our stores. (With our consume-critical city walks we offer an alternative approach towards the issue of global production chains.) We start our workshop by discussing the vague and abstract term “globalization” and reflect our own positions regarding global processes. In this discussion we come across economic, social and ecological dimensions, which will be examined further during the project day.
