Mini-symposium: Art, Gendered Labour and Resistance
Friday, June 15, 2012 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (BST)
Nottingham, United Kingdom
Convened in collaboration with Angela Dimitrakaki (University of Edinburgh)
Relying on a largely female work force, precarious labour is also understood to be “feminized” because it demands soft skills and forms of emotional investment - from care and performed enthusiasm to corporate loyalty. Featuring Jo Applin, Angela Dimitrakaki, Julia Morandeira, Nina Power, Maria Ruido and Marina Vishmidt, this event explores new understandings of gendered labour, considers how recent generations relate to their predecessors, and asks if female involvement in every sphere of contemporary labour might offer a new ground for resistance.
Nottingham Contemporary’s public programme is jointly funded by Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
This event is at Nottingham Contemporary
