Agnes Richter, a seamstress, was committed against her will to a mental institution in Germany during the late 1800s and early 1900s.While there, she took apart her institution uniform and re-made it as a jacket, stitching every surface (inside and out) with text. Her text has been difficult to decode and it is still being worked on - the text is believed to be autobiographical.
The jacket is now in the Prinzhorn collection in Heidelberg and you can read more about it and Agnes Richter in this book by Gail Hornstein. Click here for more details.
