Rainer GanahlPlease, teach me Chinese–Please, teach me Italian / Marx a Prato, Gucci a Prato is a performance by the artist Rainer Ganahl that was created as a result of the fashion show he staged at the Luigi Pecci Center for Contemporary Art in Prato in June 2018. Today, the Italian city is a center of the international fashion industry and marked by a social division between the local population and a migrant, almost exclusively Chinese, community active in textile processing. In the context of the performance, a fashion show will be staged performatively, accompanied by video, sound recordings, and a presentation of Ganahl’s recently released publication Manhattan Marxism.
