Performative talk - Marie Thams & Maria Bordoff at SixtyEight Art Institute

22 Oct 2016

As part of the launch of 8 hours? 0,- desire at SixtyEight Art Institute, October 22 2016, Marie Thams and curator and art critic Maria Bordorff had a performative conversation in which they diagnosed the art worker phenomena with the use of a light box and scanned objects.

Each had they selected five aspects of their experiences of the working conditions you face as an art worker. Among the issues were: balancing between economical/material reality and immaterial wish; precarity and what's worse – concern about art and the ability to resist and be critical; reproduction versus production; work with work – obsessed about the topic 'art as labour'; constant view of one's own abyss; exposure; and passivity and acceleration.

Together with the launch of the sound work/publication, artist Kevin Malcolm from Hour Editions (which he runs with artist Kristina Bengtsson) presented the other publications from the series Not not work.

8 hours? 0,- desire by Marie Thams, is the sixth publication in the series Not not work, published by Hour Editions.
