Werker 2 addresses the Museum by interrogating the relation of the ordinary man with History. From our collection of Worker Photographer publications and other documents depicting labour compiled in second-hand bookstores and antiquaries from Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Spain and U.S.A, we articulate a visual History of Labour centered around the figure of the Young Worker.
