Sorge 87


Sorge 87




CATALOGUE TEXT
Clattering sewing machines, clattering memories. In 1987, the Saxon city of Werdau needed workers for its textile industry. Because of full employment the jobs were advertised in Vietnam, as usual in the GDR at the time. Many came – some stayed. Delicate fabric prints tell of this economically still prosperous period just before the reunification. A Vietnamese and a German couple cheerfully remember initial difficulties and cultural misunderstandings.
