MADE IN CHINA

 “Made in China” (2010) was a project that took form of publication, seminars and presentations.  The project looked into globalization and formation of a new class: a virtual labour outsider. Since most of goods for our consumption are produced in developing countries, Lis decided to examine the mechanism of a free market  and to commission her personal statement rather than write it herself. She posted an ad online (Odesk.com) and received 34939 replies within the first couple of hours, most of them from developing countries, bidding for the job. She selected  four workers, one each from Pakistan, India, Philipines and Bangladesh and paid them $10 for one week work. “Made in China” exposed a system of global market without global society.  Despite the fact that the workers supply goods for the western market they never will became a part of western society.
