Work Book is a reader on labour, work and production in the contemporary art practice compiled by 12 artists and published by Hour Editions. Existing somewhere between a scrapbook and a conventional anthology of academic writing, the book is available to those who participate in an unwaged internship at Hour Editions for the duration of the production of their copy of the book (approx. 5 minutes). The production of the book is thus effectively outsourced to a near-constant flow of micro-interns.
We will meet in the blind spot is a film by Maj Hasager (DK) which takes as its point of departure the Filipino migrant community, present as domestic workers, gardeners and chauffeurs in and around the Esposizione Universale di Roma (EUR) area originally built by Mussolini as a utopian ‘Third Rome’ and used as a location the films of Fellini and Antonioni. There will be a screening of the film with an introduction by Hasager followed by a launch of her book Making Visible.
Divergent Organisation for Hierarchical Labour (DOHL) is a role playing and radical world building discussion card game led by Francis Patrick Brady (UK). A parody of the division of white collar Labour forces within the western world, the increasingly splintered specialisation of creative energies into increasingly niche bubbles of rehashed/freelance/ intern-centric careers is posed as a formalised role-play discussion about the future.
UIP27 by Joachim Hamou (FR) is a feature length film set in 2027 in United Israel-Palestine, a new state administrated by the United Nations. The majority of the film was recorded during public events where lawyers, activists, researchers and witnesses participated in debates that generated material for the actors. For GI there will be a screening of the film followed by a discussion with Hamou.
Ectoplasmic Materialism (UK/DK) will present The Spillover Room: A séance in and with dead labour.
