  • MANIFESTO OF IDEAL WORK

    A search across different backgrounds, privileges and disadvantages.

    A search across different backgrounds, privileges and disadvantages.

    In the constant struggle to find and/or avoid work, we often forget to ask the fundamental questions: What is work? Why do we work? How and for whom do we work? And what would our ideal work look like? This year’s WIENWOCHE open working group, consisting of about 30 participants of different professional and any other background, of different privileges and disadvantages, has set out on a quest to find possible answers. Its research process has led to a kaleidoscopic MANIFESTO OF IDEAL WORK, now presented through performances, workshops, installations, videos, and chance encounters. A documentation of a social experiment.

    What are the possibilities of contemplating our daily work? Try it at the calligraphy workshop with Ali Kianmehr! Is it possible to versify the working world for the better? Experiment at the haiku workshop with Sarah Bildstein! How do those who have not yet been contaminated with work experience reflect on the search for ideal work? We’ll find out together with children between five to eleven years old.

    In addition, we’ll discuss this topic with Daniel Kennedy from a futuristic perspective; we’ll refuse conventional functionality with a performance by Florian Jung; and we’ll talk about the labour of love and the actual potentials of its Yugoslav historical context with Adela Jušić.

    The MANIFESTO OF IDEAL WORK is not codified. It moves, along with our working heads, our hands, feet, and hearts. Move along, too!

    The open working group was coordinated by Aleksandra Aleksić, Mirjana Djotunović Mustra and Jana Dolečki.
