Marija Mojca Pungerčar: Socialdress – Power to the People

07 October 2013 > 14 October 2013 You are kindly invited to the opening of the exhibition Socialdress - Power to the People by the artist Marija Mojca Pungerčar, on 7th October 2013, at 7 pm, at Alkatraz Gallery.


WHAT IS SOCIALDRESS?


The author Marija Mojce Pungercar uses the term “social dress” for clothing that has an integrative effect in terms of community. The Socialdress workshops spread knowledge about clothes making, at the same time reinforcing awareness about the consequences of globalization to the Slovenian textile industry, and about the gradual disappearance of craft skills. At Socialdress workshops we create functional items of clothing with a lot of soul that are easy to make as well.

An important part of the workshops is an exchange of stories and experiences. In this way we create and propagate the Socialdress brand label. You cannot buy a Socialdress dress in a shop, you can only make it yourself.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
