In 2004/2005 the artist collective subRosa set up an installation at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art with the title "Can You See Us Now? Ya Nos Pueden Ver?"

Visitors were asked to cut out the labels from the clothes they were wearing and to pin them on a map of the world making links between themselves and the origin of their clothing.

"Thus visitors actively explored and demonstrated their own participation and complicity in globalized labor conditions."
