Life a Userʼs Manual: I work, therefore Iʼm not
Program: 11.00 – 19.00 (Monday closed, open on October 2)
Inspired by the tension between visible work and invisible work, this subchapter captures a decoupage from an artist’s work space, be it a physical one – the workshop – or a conceptual one – taking into account sources of inspiration – and the ideas that sometimes remain unrealized. Transposing the myths about artists in the context of these sections gives rise to ironic perspectives and paradoxical statements, destabilizing the stereotypes about art and creation. Work is seen here as much as a matrix in the inevitable system of production, transaction and exchange, as an artistic activity articulated around ideas of group, unity, collaboration and interdependence.
