Lecture / field report by Valerie Lange in the context of the re:pair FESTIVAL.

Repair is a necessary sustainable practice, mostly carried out by consumers themselves or by professional alteration tailors. But what about the responsibility of producers in case of damage even after a legal warranty? Shouldn't manufacturers actually repair their products? Is this really the consumer's responsibility and part of the care?

Valerie Lange is a fashion designer, pattern maker and senior artist at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. She puts her demand for repair and responsibility of producer:s in the form of repair request letters to companies and shares her experiences.
