Join DERC’s Shanti Sumartojo as she moderates a panel discussion on Tuesday 1st May(May Day) at the iconic, the Mission to Seafarers. Shanti will be hosting a panel discussion about the Labor of Art.
We are told that work is on the brink of becoming immaterial. The information age, the knowledge economy, the third industrial revolution conspire in this. But for every job in a rich economy involving computer work, desk time and intellectual effort, a worker elsewhere is laboring for minimal pay just to survive.
Art, Labor and Working Life draws together a panel of artists and arts workers to discuss the nature of art work, its precarity, paradoxes and complicities. SPEAKERS: Bindi Cole Chocka, Nicholas Walton-Healey, Bianca Vallentine MODERATOR Shanti Sumartojo
