The project examines the human and political forces behind the new “technological revolution” (robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning), drawing attention to its undesirable and under-represented sides. To this end, the projects sets out in search of evidence of the reconfiguration of current conditions of material and immaterial work, poorly and highly paid and qualified, illegal and legal, traditional and new forms of work.
In a workshop with the Paris-based Bureau d’Etudes, the discussion will centre on links between technological implementation, increasing precariousness, democratisation and scenarios for the future.
There will be a lecture on techno-feminism by theorist Helen Hester (London) and a discussion about the future of work. The results will be reviewed in collaboration with AMS Graz-Ost and presented in the form of images and video installations around the city.
