AT YOUR SERVICE goes Steyr
The exhibition AT YOUR SERVICE – ART AND LABOUR, a cooperation between Technisches Museum Wien and ERSTE Foundation, brings together nine works of renowned artists on the topic of art and labour. After its presentation in the Technisches Museum Wien (Technical Museum Vienna), AT YOUR SERVICE will move to the Museum Arbeitswelt (Museum of the working world) in Steyr, Upper Austria. The art works will be incorporated into the main exhibition “working_world.net – Working and Living in Globalization” and can be seen as interventions in different locations throughout the entire museum.
With the exhibition AT YOUR SERVICE – ART AND LABOUR, Technisches Museum Wien and ERSTE Foundation are exploring new ground, engaging technology and art in dialogue. The artist Pavel Braila, Anna Jermolaewa, Daniel Knorr and Ulrike Lienbacher have been invited to produce new art works on the theme of labour, presenting new and unexpected perspectives on the development of steel production, energy extraction, the railways and everyday life. Videos by Harun Farocki, Adrian Paci and Anne Tallentire complement the spectrum. Visitors will have the opportunity to pursue those perspectives in a communication game and discuss the issues raised by the artists and the exhibition with other visitors: How is labour changing? How do work and unemployment affect the way we perceive ourselves?
