The participation of STREETWARE saved item at the themed evening is part of 'The Congress on the Clothes Dump' which describes a series of events between September and November 2021 dedicated to an inclusive and participatory philosophizing about the meaning of clothes, their production, distribution and consumption. Invited guests and random attendees dig into textonic layers, search for solutions, question the ethics of the second skin. Clothing protects and adorns. It represents basic aesthetic and existential needs, but its mode of production destroys the environment on a large scale and endangers the physical and psychological well-being of the people who cope with the manufacturing processes in socially intolerable conditions. How could sustainable production and economy look like - this is what we want to explore with people from the global - as well as Berlin - North and South in a multi-perspective way.
