OOW! Out-of-Work

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formPerformanceArt in coproductionpeer-review


OOW!, a performance created by Karolina Kucia and her workgroup Freja Bäckman, Zosia Hołubowska and Airi Triisberg, means Out-Of-Work!. It is a performance on precarization of labour dealing with the conditions of in, out and no work. The performance grows out of a collection of stories of inadequacy, unease and hypocrisy in labour structure. Beginning with Parasitic Inhabitation the performance proceeds through mutations, dysfunctions, stuttering and glitching towards the end, the errorist exodus, the mis-exit or rather Miss-Sex-It. OOW! is performed by bodies, machines and scripts. There is a logic in this madness; there is humour in the gloominess. Out-Of-Work is a monstrous method.
