With Danilo Correale, Karin Harrasser & Barbara Mahlknecht
Working the Body questions the submission to work – of the body and of subjectivity, but also discusses moments of (bodily) resistance.
Today, specific competences and knowledge are not sufficient anymore on the labour market. On top of this, workers need to prove perfect self-management, they need to be fit, beautiful, young and professional, and consider work as the path towards self-fulfillment. A range of body techniques – also based on technology – serve this purpose, marking a further step of biopolitics. How can the working body escape this normalization?
Location: Heuer am Karlsplatz
What will the world of work look like tomorrow? How can one act today in order to question the conceptions of capitalism, of de-regulation as well as geographical and gender-related separations of work? How can alternatives be addressed and shaped?
