Work Site - BA Culture Criticism and Curation at Show Two

User-added image

20 Jun - 24 Jun 2018

Work Site will explore the variegated political strands underlying the concepts of labour and the impact of technological development. Over three months, the graduating class of BA (Hons) Culture, Criticism, and Curation has researched issues such as the dwindling job market, the rise of unpaid internships, and the seemingly endless perpetuation of neoliberal capitalism. The result is Work Site, a programme of artistic interventions, workshops, talks, and screenings which will take place throughout Degree Show Two: Design (20-24 June).


All events will take place in Room C202, there is no need to book.
