Labor is love is a concept that concerns the future of work. By imagining it with the effects of automated workflows, constantly disappearing and appearing jobs within turbulent economies, and the arising precarious class; we like to envision, experiment and prototype a future dominated by arts and artistic practices driven by individual’s will and desires in a non-institutional and non-commodified context. What we’re after is creating circular, autonomous economies that can sustain well with continuously evolving and self-learning models.
We will host a series of sessions whose medium could be workshops, presentations, poetry, music, performance, lecture or any medium proposed by its contributor.
You are very welcome to propose a contribution with your work, within this framework:
- You love doing that work. You have your affection with it.
- Such temporal justifications as “success” and “failure” would not prevent you from practicing that work, or, better, they would render irrelevant for your curiosity and desire to practice it.
- Your work is either reflective, analytical, critical, spiritual in its being or in some way for the benefit of a society you choose to relate to.
We welcome contributions of any kind, from permaculture experiments to deep learning algorithms that create music for robots, to a study about behaviours of migrating birds. If in doubt, please do send us your contribution and we will make sure to have you present your work within our time frame.
We will start at 13:00 and we have sufficient room to divide into parallel sessions, if necessary. Feel free to challenge us and help us get better.
Note: Labor is Love is a 100% open source concept whose implementation in another context is not only allowed, but also encouraged. It’s also entirely grassroots; with no particular agenda behind, other than that which is published on this website.
