24p, saddle-stitched, 2-color blue and red risograph, 5.0"x7.0"
A limited-edition project of the Ladydrawers Comics Collective, created in conjunction with das weisse haus in Vienna, Austria. Interviews conducted by Anne Elizabeth Moore and art by Delia Jean and Simon Haussle. This comic is an addition to Our Fashion Year, which is an exploration of international women’s labor that ran monthly on Truthout. Unraveling the threads that weave together fast fashion and human trafficking, Our Fashion Year asks why and how the flow of capital particularly disadvantages women, throughout the world. Volksmode 2014 focuses on asking this question of men in Austria, a country neither currently known as a garment producer nor a fashion capital, but which is nonetheless subject to the same global forces as workers in Phnom Penh and models in New York City.
