Preliminary Studies Towards 
de Nieuwe Nieuwsmarkt

As part of the exhibition 2 Unlimited, join us for a performative lecture and open discussion about publishing as a community in the past and the future with with Werker Collective, Rietlanden Women’s Office, Experimental Jetset, and others.
 
Since the last 10 years Amsterdam is experiencing a tourist invasion, students or anyone with a lower income are suffering from high rent, social housing is sold to the private sector and the city council’s offer of housing and studio space for artists and designers is declining in size and further liberalised. Do the policies of the city council coincide with the ideas of the inhabitants? How can art and self-publishing become a space for criticism and speculative political solutions? 
 
The event marks the beginning of a longer research project that will expand into the future.

fanfare inc.

Werker Collective has contributed the 10 Minutes Photography Course for the second chapter of fanfare inc. that is now presented at Manifesta 12 Biennial in Palermo.
 
fanfare inc. is a creative investigation into the conditions of contemporary creative labour. The second chapter of fanfare inc. is focusing on tools. fanfare inc. comes as a catalogue, a podcast, a website, and active installation.
 
Anything can arguably be a tool, and one might very well say that the capability of applying toolness to things remains the most significant milestone in human evolution. The advancement of tools has contributed to the development of human culture and the rise of civilization. Tools change, but their essence is constant: something that extends forces, and improves results. Tools simplify our doing. Tools win time. Tools enable movement.

Photographs as a public space

The exhibition aims to emphasise the diversity of photographic culture, highlighting the extent to which its principal narratives affect not only the authors’ practices or creative processes, but also how they regulate and condition our experience as viewers. To learn to appreciate this diversity of ideas, approaches and practices will allow us to realise how and to what extent the medium’s most generic discourses modulate how photography can affect us and how we take part in its constant attribution of new meaning.
 
With: Anna Malagrida, Aleix Plademunt, Daniela Ortiz, Ferran Freixa, Francisco Ontañón, Joan Fontcuberta, Joana Biarnés, Jordi Guillumet i Mònica Roselló, Mabel Palacín, Manel Armengol, Manel Úbeda, Marc Roig Blesa i Rogier Delfos (Werker Collective), Martí Llorens, Pilar Aymerich, M.

École de photographie populaire

Werker Collective travaille avec plusieurs groupes de voisins du quartier de la Busserine à Marseille pour faciliter une réflexion collective sur les formes et les problématiques (locales et globales) du travail contemporain: le travail des jeunes, la migration et la mobilité des travailleurs, les questions de genre liées au travail, l’invisibilité de certains types de travail (notamment le travail domestique naturalisé dans le rôle de la femme), la représentation du travail dans les médias…

Launch of Werker 2 featuring performances by Sandberg’s Master of Voice

Werker 2 – A Spoken History of the Young Worker manifests as a publication, but also as an installation that displays its content through spacial arrangement allowing for collective reading; How can documents be performed by its readers? Coming Thursday Werker will present a condensed version of the installation. Students of Sandberg’s Master of Voice will interpret and perform a selection of images and text from the publication. Werker 2 – A Spoken History of the Young Worker functions as an open platform for experiment; the performances can take any shape but only its sound is recorded and archived online.
