MONOCULTURE – MIGRATIE
John Berger and Jean Mohr, "A Seventh Man: Migrant Workers in Europe", 1975
At the time of the book's publication in 1975, one manual worker in seven in the UK and Germany was of migrant background. Across Western Europe, migrants were invited to undertake some of the most difficult and least desirable jobs. A Seventh Man brings together texts by John Berger and photos by Jean Mohr. It paints an empathetic portrait of the migrant worker in Western Europe. Berger and Mohr examine the material conditions and inner experiences of migrant workers, revealing how they do not live in the margins of modern society but actually right in the middle of it.
