Ausstellung | A DAY´S WORK
27. January - 14. April
This exhibition – curated by British artist Susan Morris – brings together a group of international artists who address issues around temporality, subjectivity, labour and art.
Some of the artists in the exhibition are concerned with the rationalization of time and natural
phenomena; others investigate the alienating effects of new technologies on workers’ lives while still others engage in a more private, personal struggle with the capricious nature of the materials with which they have chosen to work. The question of what constitutes a day’s work changes alongside industrial and technical developments. Artists comment on these things while being themselves constrained by the limits of the materials they use and the time they have to do something with them. Considered within the context of contemporary conditions of work, therefore A DAY´S WORK examines the activity of artists in relation to this mutable unit of measurement.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue, launched on March 3rd, containing an introductory essay by curator Susan Morris. Art historians Prof. Margaret Iversen (University of Essex) and Prof. Michael Newman (Goldsmiths College, University of London) will contribute essays on the themes of diagramming and measuring the day.
