Today’s Tomorrows
Living Labour / Working Life

Danilo Correale, No More Sleep No More, 2014/16. Video, audio, 240 min. Courtesy the artist and Galleria Raucci/Santamaria, Napoli/Milan.

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.

Living Labour / Working Life casts a feminist perspective on working relations in order to trace the hierarchy between reproductive and productive, immaterial and material, cognitive and manual labour.

Capitalism has separated the public, productive, and accumulative space from the private, reproductive, maintainer space. This separation goes hand in hand with social and gender-based divisions that reinforced the invisibility of (devalued) work mainly performed by women. Today, not only gender-inequalities continue to exist, also the hierarchical order of immaterial and manual labour seems set, while private life, desires, sexuality, and affects enter the public, economic space. How has this situation evolved? How can we re-think care, maintenance, and reproductive activities? 

The event is held in English.
