Lauterstr. Fünfzig

LAUTERSTR. FÜNFZIG documented in 2016 the traditional as well as modern production technologies of german medical textile production. Starting from raw cotton, to millions of individual threads that are combined and woven into an interwining texture to make the final product — a medical bandage with its conjoining function. The photographs show people deeply connected to the company and each other, through many decades of close collaboration and at the same time bearing signs of hard physical labour.
