THE DRESS
3 von 17

All women are wearing the same red dress while at work, to level out their origin and status. With the uniform red thread they will each act according to her own aesthetic feelings and her own manual skills. Each woman has to decide whether to use classical embroidery techniques or find new forms, to work abstract or to create images. She decides whether to tell her own story or to express dreams of the future. What has already been embroidered may be completed, responded to or even taken over. The embroidery is a means of communication between women of different native languages.†
