Agnes Richter’s Jacket / Agnes Richter was a patient in a mental institution in late 19th century/ early 20th century Germany. While there, she took apart her institution uniform and re-made it as a jacket, stitching every surface (inside and out) with text. The writing has been difficult to interpret because it uses an obsolete Gothic script and can be hard to work out which surface (inside or outside) the stitching belongs to. However, it is believed that the phrases are autobiological.
