How does contemporary art reflect the world of work today?
The catalogue for the second part of the exhibition Constructing the World at the Kunsthalle Mannheim takes a look at this question.
The focus of it is primarily on artistic positions of the past decade that deal with the social, political, and economic effects of the most recent economic crisis after 2008. The works address and interrogate new production conditions and developments on the labour market as well as political conflicts.
The accompanying publication provides fascinating insights into the diverse artistic positions.
Accompanies the exhibition Constructing the World: Art and Economy, 12 Oct 2018 – 3 Feb 2019, Kunsthalle Mannheim, Germany.
