Anti-Factory Bristol
2009

Workshop and installation area commissioned for the "Craftivism" exhibition, Arnolfini, Bristol, UK. Curated by Ann Coxon (Tate Modern) and Zoe Shearman (Relational)

Using recycled garments, visitors were invited to create their own custom Anti-Factory hoodie-scarves or fabric shopper bags. Graphic wall panels and flyers guided people through the steps, making contrasts between an individualized DIY creative process and the global production of large-scale garment manufacturing. People were encouraged to keep their items or, as "shared" objects, leave them behind for other people to finish. Custom Anti-Factory tags were available to affix to the items, along with notes or messages left for the next fabricator.

The project encouraged visitors to rethink the ways in which they both consume and create, posing a hands-on activity that touched on topics of labor issues, waste, economics, and personal agency.

During the course of the exhibition, workshops and discussions were held in the space by Labour Behind the Label, a Bristol-based anti-sweatshop organization.
