The Labour of Making Labour Disappear

Sanela Jahić

Presentation in the framework of the round table Art Making in the Age of Automation.
Moderator: Domenico Quaranta
WED, 15 January 2020
Moderna galerija Ljubljana

How does the increasing automation of labour affect artistic practice, on all the levels of content, process and form? How is it affecting the present society and our vision of the future? What can art do to deal with the increasing fragmentation of human labour and its disappearance from visibility, and give it back its presence and dignity? Taking off from their own work and from the statements of other participants in the symposium, the artists involved in the round table will attempt to offer an answer to these and other questions.
