The OUTFITS OF CHINESE FACTORY WORKERS were meant to be purchased directly from the worker during work (with pick up next day) and complemented with 3 large labels. 1 label:  Please, teach me.. logo, 2 a google screenshot showing results when entering the terms PRATO and WORKER 3 some biographical information about the worker.

I wanted not only to LEARN SOMETHING ABOUT THE WORKER”S CLOTHING, THIEIR LIVES,  their immigration tales, but also to  INSIST THAT THE MUSEUM AND THE TOWNHALL ENGAGE WITH EACH OTHER, since my organizers are used to speek for them: They can’t “understand,” they are "closed off", they had to be spoken for and eventually  - they “smiled and are nice like us.”
