Welcome to week 4

This week, we will look at two more projects related to workers.

One project occurs in a small French factory on the outskirts of Beijing. Since 2010, more than 40 artists have been invited to the factory to interact with people working there to create artworks in a variety of mediums.

The other project involves a group of musicians, who have been writing songs for migrant workers since 2002, and have performed at hundreds of construction sites.

Although both projects are related to workers, they are different in many ways. This week, instead of me providing a comparison, you will be asked to compare and contrast these two projects after we take a close look at each of them.
