Will robots replace care workers?
What’s required for a healthy work life, environment, and planet?
REWORKING LABOR explores the challenging new landscape of work and labor, with a panel discussion and conversation on issues of contemporary labor and new forms of creative collaboration.
Participants include Daniel Eisenberg, Dr. Felicitas Hentschke, Deanna Ledezma, Joshua Rios, Ellen Rothenberg, and Sonia Yoon.
REWORKING LABOR, the three-part curatorial research project – international symposium, exhibition, and publication – presented contemporary representations of work and labor, highlighted maintenance and care work, social reproduction, and the future forms of work. Coming shortly after the close of the exhibition at the SAIC Sullivan Galleries in December 2019, the transboundary Covid-19 crisis, affected and reconfigured all elements of our social system, forcing far-reaching reevaluations in our relation to work. With this new book, the contributors take the crisis as a starting point, considering these changes and what they mean for a new generation.
The book launch of REWORKING LABOR is presented in partnership with the Goethe-Institut Chicago and with support from the SAIC Galleries, The Institute for Curatorial Research and Practice at SAIC, and the Illinois Arts Council Agency. Read more here
