Featuring: Taslima Akhter and Robin Berson
Presented by Magnum Foundation
Taslima Akhter and Robin Berson will be speaking in conversation about their processes as artists and activists working in the labor movement, advocating for the rights of garment workers. The two have collaborated and communicated from across the world: Akhter in Bangladesh, and Benson in New York, on projects memorializing the lives of mostly female garment workers that have been lost in preventable factory tragedies. Both women work on the ground for the equal rights of workers and to create an awareness of the conditions that exist within garment factories worldwide.
