Work, work, work, work (work) - labour and usefulness
Mål og innhald
This course looks at current working conditions, and artistic responses to increasing pressures of time and on
¿productivity¿. The reading departs from Hannah Arendt¿s three different forms of human activity: labour, work and action, before moving on to critiques of contemporary technological culture, characterised by hyperconnectivity, a new labour ¿precariat¿, and the blurring of the boundaries between work and leisure. What does it mean to work as an artist under such conditions? How can artistic work be characterised as ¿useful¿? What does ¿working together¿ entail?
