Evenings with Reporters: What Is the Cost of Your T-Shirt?

  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: October 26, 2021, 19:00 – 20:00

The 2013 collapse of the eight-storey Rana Plaza garment factory in Dhaka, which left over 1,000 dead, did not shake the world of fast, cheap fashion. The Polish reporter Marek Rabij, who covers Southern Asia as well as globalisation and its influence on our everyday lives, has visited Bangladesh several times. He uncovered how designer label t-shirts and jeans, as well as cheap clothing, are made, what local people are paid and how these things relate to prices in European shops. His book of journalism Life Made to Measure has just come out in Czech on the Absynt imprint.

The discussion will be chaired by its Czech translator Michala Benešová and take place in Polish, interpreted into Czech.
Organised by the Václav Havel Library in cooperation with Prague’s Polish Institute.
