Research output: Artistic and non-textual form › Exhibition › Solo art production › peer-review
Through a corpus of installation and performance, as well as socially engaged artistic practices, this research cycle asks the following questions: What links can we weave between magic and post-capitalism? Are we capable of imagining an "exit" from capitalism and putting it into action? How can art, magic and politics be understood in the same way, as creative actions?
Evoking both domesticity and laborious work (Im)possible labor is intended as a space of circulation for ideas regarding women’s work — invisible, domestic, care, reproductive labor — post-capitalism, post-work, feminist economics, wages for housework, universal basic income and magic as a creative action. Highlighting the various connections between witchcraft, handicraft, domesticity and politics, the exhibition proposes the inclusion of certain craft techniques, namely weaving and tapestry. Aiming at an appropriation of skills and knowledge endangered by capitalism, this inclusion raises questions relating to the real or imagined opposition of craftwork and labor work, private and public, as well as production and reproduction work.
