Where have all the donkey jackets gone?
A lot of people are worried about how new technologies will influence and change their lives. They are anxious about the future and ask themselves if their labour will be required any longer. How can the user dismiss his natural fear and understand technologies as an opportunity to use it for emancipatory purposes?
We are in a town in UK‘s midlands. Known for its once strong but gone history in coal mining. The donkey jacket was the miner‘s workwear. Every man remembers his own: thick black wool felt. leather patches on the shoulders, short collar, four buttons on the front, no flaps on the pockets. With the closing of the pits in 1987, the jacket disappeared. We wonder, where it‘s gone. And what will takes place when it happens again. What will we wear for work, when there is no work anymore?
