Abstract (English)

"The films in this exhibition are organized around work—how it’s imagined, mythologized, and represented. These artists look at women as labourers in societies where their labour is often invisible and undervalued. Here, the terms of employment are being challenged—by union organizing, collective working models, and questioning the terms of value. Ranging from ethnographic studies to structural experiments, the films in this exhibition critique and re-imagine the conditions in which these groups of women work together." -- Publisher's website.
