Today’s Tomorrows
Working the Body

Deutsch: Danilo Correale, No More Sleep No More, 2014/16. Video, Audio, 240 Min. Courtesy der Künstler und Galerie Raucci/Santamaria, Neapel/Mailand.

The 5-part discursive program Today's Tomorrows explores the work of the future and the future of work against the backdrop of current processes of automatization and deregulation-from an analytical as well as a speculative perspective.

Working the Body questions the submission to work-of the body and of subjectivity-but also discusses moments of (bodily) resistance.

Today, specific competences and knowledge are not sufficient anymore on the labor market. On top of this, workers need to prove perfect self-management; they need to be fit, beautiful, young, and professional; and they need consider work as the path towards self-fulfillment. A range of body techniques-also based on technology-serves this purpose, marking a further step in biopolitics. How can the working body escape this normalization?
