The radio play combines the interview material with an audio description of the setting, which was build in the Sophiensæle courtyard on September 04 and 05, 2021 and can now be viewed in the picture gallery in a series of photos.
A car stands there. Trunk open. The radio is playing. Women* and queers are talking. And they talk about class. Based on interviews, the installation Fashionshow: Working Class Daughters negotiates questions of class, gender and migration. In the process, one's own role as, among other things, a working class academic is reflected upon - and almost incidentally, intersectionality and links to other identity and structural categories are revealed. The installation is based on a previous performance and the T-shirt collection specially designed for it, and takes up images of Eastern European markets and informal trade. It subtly refers to a current phenomenon in which so-called "work-wear" finds its way into high-fashion contexts.
What's classy if you're rich, but trashy if you're poor?
* Working Class Daughters refers to women as all those who self-identify and/or are read as such and are structurally discriminated as women. That doesn't have to say anything about the gender identity of each individual person.
WORKING CLASS DAUGHTERS is a cycle of work on the interconnections of class, gender and migration that Kristina Dreit, Karolina Dreit, Anna Trzpis-Mclean have been working on since 2018. Based on (their own) post-Soviet migratory experiences and a long friendship and sisterhood, they are especially interested in (biographical) stories that remain invisible or hardly find a voice, as well as historical and current references to labor and labor struggles.
