About A Worn World - Le monde que l'on porte
Initiated by the German duo deufert&plischke, A Worn World-Le monde que l'on porte addresses the themes of modesty, desire, pleasure and fear expressed through clothing. In close contact with the skin, the sensitive organ they "touch", they are the direct expression of a personal affirmation: they convey our stories, our memories, evoke our cultures and specific places, reflect sociological and economic biases, exalt our feelings of belonging and our resistance. Clothing has the power to address important themes such as self-image, gender identity, coming of age, family.

For two weeks, the Goethe-Institut Montréal will be transformed into a creative space where you can sew, draw, design, tell stories, reject them and sew them back together: you will be able to participate in various workshops supervised by the artists and/or take advantage of the supervised lab. 

Artistic assistance: Olivia Sofia
