ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY, ALL PLAY AND NO WORK MAKES SOMEONE ELSE A RICH BOY.
Exhibition and Round Table at Sale Docks (Venice), 2018.
Artists: Danilo Correale, The Institute Of Human Obsolescence, MACAO
7-8 April 2018
Dorsoduro 265, Venezia, Italy
A platform for artworks and workshops.
A narrative developed around the work Reverie. On the Liberation From Work by Danilo Correale (presented in a new version at S.a.L.E Docks) that offers, through the tools of hypnosis, an experience of subjective decolonization in preparation for a post-work society.
A world where full automation and universal income co-exist. Where time and subjectivity are finally free from the paradigm of work.
Two more projects will be presented: Crypto Rituals, by MACAO (Nuovo centro per le arti, la cultura e la ricerca di Milano) and the Data-Production Labour a project that makes visible and calculates the amount produced when using social network, completely changing our perspective on this kind of platforms: from pastime to unpaid labour.
The projects frame a spreading tension that sees art as a tool to confront work, the modes of production and the forms of compensation.
Yet the fiction of these visions expresses a power that goes far beyond the mere exercise of imagination. On the contrary, it produces real speculative applications and creates important means for analyzing the problems of an era increasingly marked by automation and a type of work that presents itself as the sum of energy and information (of fossil combustion and algorithms).
The talks will focus on these and more topics from the perspective of aesthetics, economics, sociology of work and gender studies.
