Our Work is Never Over, group show curated by Yael Messer, opens on June 7 at 21 h. in Nave 16 / Matadero Madrid as part of PHotoEspaña 2012. In November 2011, Messer (Jerusalem, 1982, lives and works in Amsterdam) held a curatorial residency at Matadero Madrid, during which she shaped the concept of this show.
Our Work is Never Over features works from artists who are constantly exploring the place where art, labor, and everyday existence overlap in contemporary society. The artists participating in the exhibition choose to reflect on the totality of their bio-political existence from within and through life itself: some document their everyday life and use this documentation as an artistic work; others frame their artistic acts as identical to any other form of labor; and a few make the gray area between artistic process and immaterial labor part of their own life.
With: Mounira Al Solh, Joana Bastos, Guy Ben Ner, C.A.S.I.T.A, Tehching Hsieh, David Levine, Ahmet Ögüt, Levi Orta, Mladen Stilinović, Pilvi Takala and Werker Magazine (Marc Roig Blesa and Rogier Delfos).
