 CONFERENCE

ART AND LABOUR
AFTER THE END OF WORK
time: 09–10.10.2015
venue: Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw 
 
 
 "Art and Labor after the End of Work" - a collaborative project by BAK, basis voor actuele kunst in Utrecht; the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw; and the Free/Slow University of Warsaw (F/SUW) - is a FORMER WEST Public Editorial Meeting that takes as its starting point F/SUW’s case study of labor relations in the arts, The Art Factory (Bęc Zmiana Foundation, Warsaw, 2014).
The F/SUW report maps present-day working patterns and distribution of resources in contemporary art in Poland, and describes a familiar picture of enthusiasm-driven overwork in a field characterized by poor economic conditions, class privilege and those without, underlying precarity, and lurking exclusion. Art and Labor after the End of Work situates these issues within the wider political economy of contemporary capitalism and cumulative theorizations of art and labor. Posited as a political problem, these working conditions are examined through the prism of art-related activism that seeks to respond by building structures of mutual support, organizing trade unions, denouncing injustice, constituting the commons, and instigating occupations.
