SONGS FOR HARD WORKING PEOPLE by Het Nieuwe Instituut

For WORK, BODY, LEISURE, the Dutch pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale 2018 BY NOAM TORAN WITH FLORENTIJN BODDENDIJK AND REMCO DE JONG A contemporary cover album of work and protest songs from the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries serves as the soundtrack for the Dutch pavilion. The songs provide a historical context for the nature of today’s labor and connect past but enduring struggles with contemporary debates regarding the effects of industrialization and automation on the working body. Songs for Hard Working People is also a tribute to all the workers involved in the production, construction, and maintenance of the Biennale and who remain largely invisible.
