Rewriting Labour History
EXHIBITION: work work work
Aug 25 – Dec 8 2018
For the exhibition I present the installation Rewriting (Labour) History, which takes its point of departure in the major work Wealth of a Nation (1776) by economist Adam Smith. The work focus is on the lacking consideration of how unpaid work helps ensure wealth.

Performance Lecture. 15 minutes.
Performed at “Schutzraum” – Thealit – Frauen. Kultur. Labor, Bremen
A Collective Arrangement of 18 minutes
Manuscript for a play, video.
The piece came out of the idea of making a bodily re-enactment of two literary works. David Harvey’s ’Spaces of Hope’, 2000 and Charles Fourier’s ’Stammefællesskabet’, 1889. The manuscript combines the appendix in Harveys book ’Spaces of Hope’ with that of Fourier’s utopian vision for a collective society dated in the late 1900 century. A society in which the members experiment with the nuclear family structure, sexual behaviour, child rearing, living arrangements, economy and social forms of engagements.

The work has been shown widely internationally
The Revenge of the Crystal, is a five-part fictional narrative set in the aftermath of the present financial collapse. It is a moment in the near future when the failing global monetary system has destroyed almost every institution, and the decay of society has become a habit where a few alternative visions exists.
