artists & participants
Casco would like to invite you to the exhibition opening of the collective project 'I Can't Work Like This' on Friday 18 May at 18.00.
'I Can't Work Like This' creates a platform for examining our working conditions in the permanent crisis of the neo-liberal economic regime, and for learning how workers from variant sectors can get effectively organised. We propose to do this through a collaborative and transdisciplinary approach involving art, design, action and theory.
The exhibition includes the works by Tucumán Arde (Archivo Graciela Carnevale), Carrotworkers' Collective, Dutch Cleaners Union (Nina Mathijsen & Marnix de Klerk), Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Jinsuk Kim & Plog TV, Florian Schneider, Charlotte Posenenske, Mierle Laderman Ukeles. It presents different relations between art and labour-related struggles, suggested through documentations of actions, contemporary and historical artworks, designs and other artifacts.
Please read more about the project and also follow the related activities such as a workshop led by experienced campaigner Valery Alazaga under the heading of 'Organising as an Open Source'; on 5 June 2012. The workshop is for free but the registration is required (e-mail Suzanne Tiemersma at email@example.com with statement of motivation).
On the occasion of the opening, there will be the screening of Petra Bauer's film 'Conversation: Stina Lundberg Dabrowski meets Petra Bauer' (2010, 30 min), made as part of her research into several British film collectives in the 70s that posed different relations with (and aesthetic strategies for) labour.
