Third iteration of the work (IM)POSSIBLE LABOR. 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.
