Workshop. The Problem of Work. Full Unemployment Cinema. 16-20 April 2012

The Problem of Work
A Full Unemployment Cinema workshop.
We would like to explore what it means to discuss work, waged and unwaged labour through through the activity of watching and discussing films together.
In keeping with the approach we have pursued in the screenings, presentations and discussions that constitute our activity as a group this will be an engaged, partisan investigation of cinema.
Our intention has always been be to discover within the cinematic representation of work struggles against wage labour, aspects of work not usually discussed and how the moving images of work might contribute to a critique of work and lead to more meaningful play for all.
We propose a daily schedule of workshops, screenings, discussions and activities.
