MADE IN SPAIN. Imprisoned Seamstresses

Sewing is the usual labour (together with make-up and hair-dressing) in many of the Women’s prisons of the Spanish State. The prisoners sew the working clothes for imprisoned people and for the prison’s staff. Increasingly, however prisoners do work for private companies, too, who have discovered a very lucrative set up by moving their production behind the prison walls. Cheap labour goes hand in hand with the benefit of being able to announce the finished products as “Made in Spain”. In times of an increasing awareness of the working conditions of the production exported outside Europe, this can help to polish a company’s image. With this strategy they are hiding that MADE IN SPAIN can be a synonym for prison-sewed. In other words: the label hides the stories of imprisoned seamstresses, silenced in the name of “social reintegration”. This exhibition and zine project started out of the necessity of some prisoners to talk about their working conditions in Spanish Women’s prisons, a testimony that outside the walls we started to put into a historical context on prison-work based on a gender perspective…
