Book launch: Work, Body, Leisure
Join the editors and contributors of Work Body Leisure on 5 March 2019 at AA London, for a conversation and the London book launch. With Nick Axel, Eva Franch, Maria Giudici, Ayesha Hamed and Marina Otero Verzier.
The publication explores the spatial configurations, living conditions, and notions of the human body engendered by disruptive changes in labor, its ethos, and its conditions. Published in conjunction with the Dutch Pavilion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of Biennale di Venezia, the essays contained in this volume reflect upon urban developments in which automated labor and leisure converge; address the ways in which evolving notions of labor have categorized and defined bodies at particular moments in time; and discuss the legal, cultural, and technical infrastructures that enable their exploitation.
Work, Body, Leisure
Work, Body, Leisure seeks to foster new forms of creativity and responsibility within the architectural field in response to emerging technologies of automation. A domain of research and innovation that, despite its ongoing transformation of the built environment and bodies that inhabit it, is still largely devoid of a critical spatial perspective.
