Traditional working hours are no longer the norm in today’s world. Many employees continue to fight for fair conditions despite apparent freedoms.Invisible labour such as unpaid domestic and care work, often performed by women, is also currently a social problem and highlights the need to address inequalities and exploitation. Today, the fight for higher wages is juxtaposed with concepts such as New Work, 4-day week and work-life balance. Are these empty words or realistic demands in a time of extreme pressure?The exhibition curated by Katie Huemer also examines the often precarious aspects of artistic and cultural work and raises questions about the blurring of the boundaries between self-exploitation and self-realisation. Part of the exhibition space is available for new productions and performative art projects that will allow the exhibition to grow during its run.Among others, works by Maja Bajević, Julien Berthier, Louisa Clement, Jeremy Deller, Antje Ehmann & Harun Farocki, Hans Hollein, Aldo Giannotti, Andreas Gursky, Michael Hieslmayr & Michael Zinganel, Tehching Hsieh, Peter Kogler, Luiza Margan, Pia Mayrwöger, Sam Meech, Michail Michailov, Elisa Giardina Papa, Nika Radić, Martha Rosler, Santiago Sierra, Lia Sudermann & Simon Nagy, KURS (Miloš Miletić, Mirjana Radovanović) and Oliver Walker.
