Blackout - Décembre 7-8
Discussion: Dec. 8, 11-13h.
Invited to Art Work(ers) exhibition, the School of non-work would like to essay an attempt to formally discuss what is artistic work: between form of achievement, self-understanding and activism, organizing and acquire knowledge.
As actors involved in an activity trapped in a larger system of labor relations and hierarchies which shape the subjectivity production, when do we become art workers? When we assume it or reject it critically from artistic practices? In what ways do we imagine work today as a transition to post-capitalism society?
In a form of an oral exploration of ways of taking a stand, we will try to approach the contours of a social object in profound mutation and redefinition. Introducing some topic to freely discuss, the symposium will present references based on artistic experiences that address problematic aspects of art as work; artistic positions that try to dismantle or overcome certain dichotomies such as professional-amateur, productive-unproductive, artistic versus non-artistic…
The participation of stakeholders from different backgrounds involved in the exhibition will allow an approach different contexts and historical imaginaries.
