Many many works on labour | Museum for performance art | Open 8h a day
Thu 30 May ’24
Sun 2 Jun ’24

From May 30th to June 2nd, Frascati and Dries Verhoeven present WORK WORK WORK: a museum for performance art. Dries Verhoeven is co-curating the programme that features six of his own works and those of other artists, resulting in a large number of performances, visual art, and video works. All of which deal with the the relationship between employer, employee and (art) consumer. Together, the participating artists probe the politics of the working body – today and into the future.

In the ever more efficient workplace, we work ourselves into the ground. The working body constantly teeters on the edge of a burn-out, while robots and artificial intelligence line up to replace us. Alienated from our humanity, we exploit ourselves and one another. Are we still able to rebel? Or do we now need to automate our resistance?
