How do we imagine a desirable post-work world

After more than a year of working on this project, American artist Jennifer Lyn Morone will present her three-channel video installation The Scheme of Things at Filodrammatica Gallery (Korzo 28/1, Rijeka), showing glimpses into the lives of several characters set in a desirable post-work world.
 
In the framework of Dopolavoro flagship of the Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture project, the installation will open on Thursday, 27 August, 2020, at 7 pm.
 
Visit the installation until 18 September, everyday from 5 to 9 pm. Admission is free.

 
 

Filmed at various locations in Rijeka and its surroundings from the end of 2019 to mid-2020, this three-channel video installation examines the topic of the future of work and labour, imagining what a desirable post-work world might look like. The emphasis is not on imagining some distant future, but on an alternative present which is based on that which is already possible today.

Three channel video was filmed in and around Rijeka from the end of 2019 to mid 2020

The artist Jennifer Lyn Morone starts from the claim that the accelerated development of technology may have changed the nature of work for some, but has not cleared the way towards a better sustainable life – which a (utopian) promise announced, saying that a technological advance would one day lead us to a world in which machines do everything, whilst humans enjoy an abundance of leisure time.

The video installation was created on the basis of the conclusions of the artist’s conservations with experts from the field of technology, politics and science, as well as a collaboration with attendees of imagining workshops for the writing of stories and scenarios about the possible future, i.e. an alternative present of the world of work, which were held in Rijeka in June 2019. The audience is able to participate in the conversation via a poll and the exchange of content, whereby the project continues as an open space for the exchange of ideas.

 

The artist has been dealing with the problematic of the position of the individual in the contemporary world of work for many years. In order to try to provoke the ruling economic and legal system from within, in 2014 she registered herself as a corporation – Jennifer Lyn Morone™ Inc, of which she is the director, the shareholder and the basic product, available for purchase in an online shop.

Jennifer Lyn Morone (1979) is an American born artist who in 2014 graduated with an MA in Design Interactions from The Royal College of Art, London, where, dismayed by the Snowden revelations in 2013, she designed a protest against the data industry and corporate personhood. She is now the founder, CEO, shareholder and product of her own company, Jennifer Lyn Morone™ Inc. As she underlies, JLM Inc is not a speculative project, but a new business, established to determine the value of an individual, as a means to enter the economic and legal system in order to play with and challenge the rules. Her work has been nominated and received an honorary mention from Ars Electonica (Linz). Apart from Rijeka, her work has been exhibited, screened and presented internationally, recently at the Martin Gropius Bau (Berlin), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin), Carroll/Fletcher Gallery (London), ZKM (Karlsruhe), Victoria & Albert Museum (London), the HeK (Basel), and Aksioma (Ljubljana). www.jenniferlynmorone.com
