AU TRAVAIL / AT WORK is a project based on a call for collaboration which is open to all. This experimental project urges artists and workers to consider their workplace as a site of creation. In all cases, the space of reflection, production, or intervention becomes the space of the employer.
The members of the collective appropriate the culture of work within the very framework of their daily lives and, ultimately, they produce themselves by making use of, subverting, or undermining the cultural and technological means that are available to them in the workplace.
The workplace is considered as a field for experimentation and discovery wherein are deployed the conflictual relations arising between private Utopias, collective necessities, and economic realities.
The members of the collective capitalize on the individual worker’s right to manage his or her own free time, and they sometimes refuse certain conditions by means of the re-appropriation and self-valorisation of such time.
The AU TRAVAIL / AT WORK collective offers its members a network of relations as well as methods for sharing, and it organizes exhibitions that ensure the dissemination of their ideas, actions, and accomplishments.
Immersed in diverse economic sectors, this collective sketches the possible figures of a new form of commitment.
