Freedom at work. Freedom through work. Freedom from work.
 “Truly, free work, e.g. composing, is at same time precisely the most damnable earnestness, the most intense effort.” (Marx)
 
“One thing we have to know about art that it is not entertainment […] To experience a work of art truly is as hard a job as to make a work of art. It really is.” (Carl Andre)
 
“Labour is the living, form-giving fire that shapes the pattern; it is the transitoriness of things, their temporality, as their transformation by living time”. Karl Marx

Let’s Work! (20222023) deals with the problem of work. It invites us, through various artistic situations set in specific environments, to reflect on the meaning and value of work, the ways in which we experience work in everyday life, and how art is at work. In the first chapter (2022), artworks are contextualized in locations that play a constructive role in society in terms of the formulation of labor policies, and more specifically the formulation of strategies in the field of cultural labor, in public services that respond to labor problems, in institutions that educate the upcoming workforce, and in spaces that play a role in contemporary art practices. The spatial and temporal positioning of works for (re)viewing by both institutional staff and invited and casual visitors aims to widen the field of visibility of the artwork and its reception. In the second chapter (2023), the artworks will be presented in their entirety in exhibition and performance formats.

Last chance to see the Art at Work exhibition and the only chance to see the one-day exhibition Let's Work! 

As the Art at Work exhibition closes, we present the one-day event Let's Work! exhibition, conceived by Loup Abramovici, Tomaž Grom, Teja Reba and Špela Trošt. The exhibition juxtaposes the works of the artists included in the Art at Work exhibition and the works of the aforementioned collective.

The works on display have been conceived as contextually specific actions for different sites that play a constructive role in society in the formulation of labour policies, more specifically in the formulation of strategies in the field of cultural labour, for public services that respond to labour problems, for institutions that educate the upcoming workforce and for spaces that cater to contemporary practices in the field of art. 

The works will be activated at certain times in the museum:
Self-portrait, 10h–18h
Warming Up, 10h–12h in 14h–16h
Happiness At Work, 10h–12h in 14h–16h
636,78, 10h–12h in 14h–16h
My Work, 10h–18h
What will you be, when you grow up?, 10h–12h in 14h–16h
